Charles Smith Kung Fu Girl Riesling 2017

£18.00

"THIS GIRL IS SERIOUS! Aromatic, smooth, vibrant and tasty. Think tangerine, apricot, wet stone, key lime, clove and nectarine....now stop thinking and start drinking..." - Charles Smith

"Over the past two years a cult following has sprung up around the persona of Charles Smith. By and large, he has acquired this status the old-fashioned way: he has earned it. Native yeast fermentation, foot crushing, spontaneous malolactic fermentations, gentle basket pressing, no fining or filtration are routinely practiced in the cellar. Even more important, Charles Smith knows where to find the great grapes. In a region where blending is the rule of thumb, he is the ultimate terroirist." Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate


Regional info.

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.

I've just had a veggie curry and Kung fu Girl went with it so well...on the nose its shows some ripe fruit and its off dry but so fresh at the same time. It is perfect on its own as well. And 10 points for the label! :)
