Description

Kung Fu Girl Riesling 2016

Kung Fu Girl Riesling 2016. White peach, mandarin orange and apricot are delivered with a core of minerality that makes this dry Riesling shimmer with energy and freshness.

It takes an unconventional winemaker to make a totally unexpected dry Riesling. One night, Charles was eating Chinese takeout and watching a fight scene in a notorious martial arts film when he had an idea: a killer white wine made to be paired with Asian food. Just like that, Kung Fu Girl was born. And it’s been kicking ass and taking names ever since.

Charles’ knowledge of and respect for old world winemaking techniques coupled with his commitment to how people actually drink wine are what make his wines so unique. His reds undergo long macerations of 30 days or more on the skins, with no racking after malolactic fermentation is finished. “They go to the barrel ‘dirty,’ on their gross lees,” he says. For whites, he foregoes battonage, and they’re fined and filtered for stability. And once they’re ready to drink, Charles says drink it any way you like it.

STREET CRED
In 2008, Charles Smith Wines was recognized by Wine & Spirits magazine as one of the “Best New Wineries of the Last Ten Years” and as “Winery of the Year” in its annual buying guide. In 2009, Food & Wine magazine awarded Charles “Winemaker of the Year”; in 2010, Seattle Magazine recognized Charles as its “Winemaker of the Year”; and in 2014, Wine Enthusiast also named him “Winemaker of the Year.”
