External Reviews for Charles Smith Riesling Washington Kung Fu Girl
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.
Fresh and open-textured, with pretty pear, melon and floral aromas and flavors that linger on a light, off-dry frame. Drink now.
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.
Light and fragrant, on the dry side, featuring tangy grapefruit and apple flavors that linger gently.
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.
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.
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.
