Food Pairings for Charles Smith Riesling Washington Kung Fu Girl
Peaches, quince and limes on the nose. There's a bit of a spritz on entry and a tart quince finish. Key lime pie flavors - nice and tart, with a bit of roundness from a touch of residual sugar.

External Reviews for Charles Smith Riesling Washington Kung Fu Girl
Fresh and open-textured, with pretty pear, melon and floral aromas and flavors that linger on a light, off-dry frame. Drink now.
We gather that the winemaker is a big fan of martial arts - and Riesling, which we can understand completely. There's so much to love: the freshness, the peach-driven fruit, and in this case, the touch of sweetness in this off-dry bottling.
This Rieslingrsquo;s fruit scents are almost applesauce ripe, with notes of lees and nutmeg providing some complexity. For all that, the texture is firm and mineral, with the freshness to stand up to the warmest August day.
Light and fragrant, on the dry side, featuring tangy grapefruit and apple flavors that linger gently.
This wine's green apple scent is spritzed with lemon, the flavors simple and satisfying. Its fine texture is marked by persistent acidity. Tailor-made for Asian dishes.
This leads with surprisingly complex scents of anise, verbena and parsley. The palate is all about freshness, simple and direct, with a saline spine informing citrusy limeade flavors, marked by lively acidity. A natural for a fiery Phuket curry.
This 2008 is the third vintage for this extraordinarily popular Riesling, again showing bright, vivid, punchy citrus fruit and juicy acids. Residual sugar is about 1.5% and once again it is sourced from the Evergreen vineyard. With production climbing to 20,000 cases, this should be easy to find at least until fall.
THIS GIRL IS SERIOUS! Aromatic, smooth, vibrant and tasty. Think tangerine, apricot, wet stone, key lime, clove and nectarine....now stop thinking and start drinking...‘CAUSE KUNG FU GIRL KICKS ASS!
