My Dad picked up this bottle for us to taste last week. It’s a Riesling from Washington State in the USA. I think this will have been my first American Riesling.
My mum reckons Kung Fu Girl (made by Charles Smith Wines) is closer to the Kiwi style of dry Riesling rather than the Aussie style with its fruity ‘sweet and sour taste’. It’s funny that my mum said that description as the wine was made purposefully to go with Chinese takeout! Sweet and sour pork anyone?
It’s a really nice and citrusy Riesling with sweet orange/mandarin dominating the flavour. It has also scored rather highly by critics making Wine Spectators Top 100 and Wine Enthusiasts Best Buys.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #tcweekdaywine
