Kings Ridge Pinot Gris Willamette
Kings ridge wines are the heart of union wine company. Kings ridge pinot gris is a vibrant and textured wine that brings to life the beautiful complexity inherent in the wines of the willamette valley. Our ability to incorporate grapes grown solely in the willamette valley growing region of oregon gives kings ridge wines their north star. After a cold damp winter we saw early spring heat that pushed bud break up a few weeks ahead of average. A heatspike around flowering caused potential yields to be reduced but would ultimately create small berries and loose clusters. The mild summer to fall temperatures allowed for great flavor development and concentration in the grapes. A historically early harvest saw us picking the sparkling wine grapes in early august and before the close of the month we were picking pinot noir from warmer sites in the willamette valley. Fruit from southern oregon vineyards came in the first half of september with the cooler willamette valley grapes wrapping
