Charles Smith Riesling Kung Fu Girl 2012

Charles Smith Riesling Kung Fu Girl 2012

Sku: 042002

2012: 90 Points - Jebb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Kicking off the whites and talking about value, the 2012 Riesling Kung Fu Girl has to be one of the best values in white wine coming out of Washington State; when you see the total production numbers, it’s straight up unbelievable to have a wine of this quality, price and availability. Offering up a gorgeously pure, fresh bouquet of lychee nut, mint, citrus and clean minerality, this beautifully focused Riesling flows onto the palate with a balanced, full mid-palate, only a touch of sweetness and integrated, yet lip smacking acidity that shines on the finish. There’s real Riesling character here (and after tasting loads of Washington State Riesling, trust me, this is not a given) and this beauty should be purchased by the case. Enjoy bottles over the coming year. Drink now-2014."

Wine maker notes
THIS GIRL IS SERIOUS! Aromatic, smooth, vibrant and tasty. Think tangerine, apricot, wet stone, key lime, clove and stop thinking and start drinking... ‘CAUSE KUNG FU GIRL KICKS ASS! —Charles Smith

Evergreen Vineyard:

Planted in 1998 by the Jerry Milbrandt, the vineyard rows lie along a stretch of steep cliffs above the Columbia River, in an area that currently falls within the broad Columbia Valley AVA, and soon to be one of the state’s newest AVA’s The Ancient Lakes. A cooler site due to river influence, the soils are composed of fragmented basalt, gravel, silt, and caliche deposited during ice age floods. This site produces fruit with sublime mineral character and the acid balance that winemakers dream of.

Food pairing
Serve with summer salads, sushi, Thai, East Indian or spicy hors d'oeuvres.
