Juicy and lively, with lots citrus blossom, lychee and a touch of lime, the 2015 Riesling Kung Fu Girl is medium-bodied, vibrant and crisp on the palate, with terrific purity, integrated acidity and a great finish. It's a steal at the price and will drink nicely for a year or more. These latest releases from Charles Smith check in at the top of the pyramid and are flat out incredible wines that I wish every reader could taste. Readers should also check out the new label, Wines of Substance, which are also included in this report. Going forward, the K Vintners label will be for the Rhone inspired blends, and all Bordeaux blends will be moved to the Wines of Substance label.(JD)
This is an über-aromatic wine, with appealing notes of white peach, jasmine, honeysuckle and lime. It’s lean in style, drinking off dry but balanced by racy acidity that stretches out the finish.
*#45 in the Top 100 Wines of 2016 and a Best Values designation* Tangy and zingy, with lively acidity that balances against gobs of ripe pear and apricot flavors, carrying through the long, lime-accented finish. (HS)
Pale, bright yellow. Peach and apricot on the nose, plus a slight fusel complexity. Modest sweetness (actually 14 grams per liter residual sugar) is nicely countered by strong acidity (the pH here is 3.04) and a touch of minerality, giving this fruit bomb good energy and grip. Always a top value, this is marketing genius Charles Smith's most famous cash cow and it's not at all overdone. (ST)
