Description

Largest Certified Biodynamic Vineyard in North America

When King Estate was founded in 1991, it was driven by a commitment to sustainability and profound respect for the land. The adventurous spirit that inspired KE from the beginning continues to serve as a guide as they nurture vineyards to craft premium Oregon wines.

The 2019 vintage was fermented in both concrete and stainless-steel tanks. Each vineyard lot was fermented separately, half of which were fermented in cooler temperatures to maximize fruit character and the other half were fermented slightly warmer to drive minerality. This wine was sur lie aged for 6 months prior to bottling, with weekly bâtonnage to build richness.

Showing a glistening pale straw color, this 2019 Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of white peach, ripe guava, key lime and damp slate. The palate is rich and fruit-driven with flavors of fresh peach, melon, lime zest and lychee. There is a subtle mineral note from aging in concrete. The acidity becomes apparent on the mid-palate and continues to elevate in a refreshing finish.

There are very few Sauvignon Blanc vines planted in Oregon, and little has been said about an Oregon-style Sauvignon Blanc. King Estate Sauvignon Blanc tends toward the fresh citrus, wet stone and white peach flavor profile.

The 2018 vintage received multiple accolades, including a 92 point score from the San Diego Int’l Wine & Spirits Challenge. The current vintage has not yet been scored.
