After many years of seeing this wine get loads of accolades, I had to try it. I have tasted thousands of Rieslings over the past 40 years, as this is my favorite grape. The wine has a perfect acid balance and is on the drier side. Flavors are mostly citrus without the complexity or fruit offered in Germany. It is somewhat singular and simple but pleasant. This is a Riesling for those that prefer dry wines. My rating-- 84 ,

Kicking off the whites and talking about value the 2012 Riesling Kung Fu Girl has to be one of the best values in white wine coming out of Washington State; when you see the total production numbers its straight up unbelievable to have a wine of this quality price and availability. Offering up a gorgeously pure fresh bouquet of lychee nut mint citrus and clean minerality this beautifully focused Riesling flows onto the palate with a balanced full mid-palate only a touch of sweetness and integrated yet lip smacking acidity that shines on the finish. Theres real Riesling character here (and after tasting loads of Washington State Riesling trust me this is not a given) and this beauty should be purchased by the case. Enjoy bottles over the coming year. Drink now-2014. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Light and fragrant, this is on the dry side, featuring tangy grapefruit and apple flavors that linger gently.

Lovely, expressive, bright and vibrant, with apple, lime and citrus blossom flavors, persisting enticingly as the off-dry finish lingers against natural acidity. Drink now through 2015.

Nice, bright, lively, zesty, salty and citrusy with a gorgeous minerality blossoming outward. A touch of sweetness on the finish. An excellent value in a dry Riesling, great for those who think of this varietal as a “too sweet white.”

Winemaker's Notes:

We've finally hit our stride. This wine kicks ass with tons of complexity, showing notes of white peach, Linden leaves and slate. Lovely focused acidity, finishing very long with mandarin orange and lots of minerality. Grab the chop sticks, crack a bottle........ this will make you happy. Alcohol 12%. Residual sugar 1.9%. Not yet reviewed; 2011 vintage rated 90 points by Wine Advocate.
