Acrobat is Oregon wine made by the King family with the steadfast determination to handcraft wines of the highest quality. Our family appreciates pairing an honest wine with our casual meals and gatherings. This led us to create Acrobat, an effortless selection – a wine that consistently pairs in every way with our lives. Acrobat is artfully crafted every vintage in the gorgeous hills and valleys of western Oregon, with an eye on sustainable winemaking practices. 2017 was a classic Oregon vintage, with bud break in late March, followed by bloom in mid- to late June, and véraison in early to mid-August, roughly two weeks later than 2016. Fruit set was heavy, requiring judicious crop-thinning to promote grape quality. After early picking for sparkling wine and Rosé, harvest on the estate began in earnest in late September and finished mid-October. The later season combined with cool harvest weather, interrupted periodically by showers, slowed ripening, allowing for enhanced flavor development and acid retention while keeping potential alcohol levels in check.
