Charles Smith Riesling Washington Kung Fu Girl 2010
Basics October Wine ClubThe grapes used in Charles Smith's Kung Fu Girl Riesling are harvested from a single rocky vineyard, resulting in a wine with lush aromatics and tons of flavor. On the nose, Kung Fu Girl is bursting with Asian pear, white peach and spring flowers. Apricot, pear, lime, and a pleasant minerality keep this off-dry wine at the perfect level of subtle sweetness. This is a great wine for a summer picnic.
Excellent! Not too sweet with a very nice acidity. Had it with smoked turkey and it was a perfect match! Would also be excellent with spicy foods.
Nice simple Reisling. Not overly sweet, with gala apple and a subtle creaminess. This was good with spicy shrimp stir fry.
American Riesling for an American day. A touch of sweetness, but not as much as its German brethren. Good acidity.
I enjoyed this wine at a Steakhouse&Winebar.Just enough sweetness and a very nice finish. Would very much buy this for entertaining friends.
External Reviews for Charles Smith Riesling Washington Kung Fu Girl
Just a hint of sweetness in this zingy and zesty riesling. Pairs well with spicy foods, or just enjoy the thirst-quenching nature of this well-made riesling. What's in the name? "Kung Fu and girls kick ass" says the off-beat winemaker Charles Smith.
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 Riesling'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.
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 ROCKS IT! Aromatic, smooth, vibrant and tasty. Think tangerine,pineapple, wet stone, key lime, clove and nectarine....now stop thinking and start drinking... 'CAUSE KUNG FU GIRL KICKS ASS! - Charles Smith ** SOLD OUT **
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.
This winersquo;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.
