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.
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.
