Winemaker Notes

This inaugural vintage of King Estate Willamette Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir has a glistening pale pink color with a fresh bouquet of orange blossom, just-ripe strawberries, and watermelon. The palate is focused and dry with racy acidity and slate-like minerality. There are enjoyable fruit flavors like strawberry, pomegranate, and lemon zest that come together in a crisp finish that begs to be paired with soft cheeses and charcuterie.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 King Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir, the winery's first vintage in the pink wine world. This wine is quite good. TASTING NOTES. This wine is pleasing, bright, and lively. Pair its aromas and flavors of tart strawberries and cranberries with a well-designed plate of salmon and tuna sashimi. (Tasted: April 26, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

One of Pinot Noir’s most successful New World outposts, the Willamette Valley is the largest and most important AVA in Oregon. With a continental climate moderated by the influence of the Pacific Ocean, it is perfect for cool-climate viticulture and the production of elegant wines.

Mountain ranges bordering three sides of the valley, particularly the Chehalem Mountains, provide the option for higher-elevation vineyard sites.

The valley's three prominent soil types (volcanic, sedimentary and silty, loess) make it unique and create significant differences in wine styles among its vineyards and sub-AVAs. The iron-rich, basalt-based, Jory volcanic soils found commonly in the Dundee Hills are rich in clay and hold water well; the chalky, sedimentary soils of Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton and McMinnville encourage complex root systems as vines struggle to search for water and minerals. In the most southern stretch of the Willamette, the Eola-Amity Hills sub-AVA soils are mixed, shallow and well-drained. The Hills' close proximity to the Van Duzer Corridor (which became its own appellation as of 2019) also creates grapes with great concentration and firm acidity, leading to wines that perfectly express both power and grace.

Though Pinot noir enjoys the limelight here, Pinot gris, Pinot blanc and Chardonnay also thrive in the Willamette. Increasing curiosity has risen recently in the potential of others like Grüner Veltliner, Chenin blanc and Gamay.

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
