Description of Charles Smith Kung Fu Girl Riesling

Charles Smith Kung Fu Girl Riesling (Riesling)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Light gold with green highlights.
  • Nose: Notes of lime leaves, linden, crushed stone, and white peach.
  • Mouth: Medium-bodied, complex, and medium-sweet, into a long, crisp, and mineral finish. Delectable flavours of apricot, clove, key lime, kumquats, nectarine, and wet stone.

APPELLATION: Washington

VINEYARD: Charles Smith is originally from northern California, where he grew up and thrived along with the grapevines. But he does not look like your average winemaker, having as he does a bold attitude, and a bold approach to packaging and marketing. Charles Smith brings this boldness to his wines and their presentation, a fresh of fresh air and a blast of style in the wine business, but without sacrificing quality.

GRAPES: Riesling.

PREPARATION: The wine itself, its name, and the fantastic and funky label, were inspired by a Quentin Tarantino film that Charles Smith watched. Charles Smith Kung Fu Girl Riesling is from the Columbia Valley region of Washington State, the grapes cultivated in cool soil which produces grapes of a unique and gorgeous minerality, and wines of great character.

PAIRING: Charles Smith Kung Fu Girl Riesling was specifically crafted to complement Asian dishes, so ginger and soy sauce-based delights are a great place to begin. You might enjoy it with Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls with a Chili and Ginger Dipping Sauce; Duck Gyoza with Plum Sauce; or General Tso's Chicken. It would also pair beautifully with Indian food.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 7-10°C

ALCOHOL: 12%

4 /5

Smooth and aromatic with flavours of apricot, key lime and nectarine.Winemaking is the new rock n roll! Or in Charles Smith s case it is the new Danish thrash metal. Charles spent a decade in Europe managing various bands you have never heard of (unless you misspent your youth in disused warehouses near the Copenhagen ring road) before seeing the light and heading to Washington State to plant vines.Grapes: 100% RieslingRegion: USA / Washington State / Columbia ValleyMaker: Charles SmithNotes: This wine is smooth and aromatic with flavours of apricot, key lime and nectarine.
