Wet stone, apricot, peach nectar and orange-rind on the nose. Bracing minerality, puckery lime juice and a slight amount of effervescence. The white fruit leads the way on the palate, but the citrus isn’t far behind. Finishes crisp.
If you’re looking for sugar-water-Riesling, you won’t find it here! This is a Riesling to change the mind of people that don’t typically drink Riesling. I’ve blind tasted people (Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc drinkers) on this wine a number of times, and I’ve never been disappointed with their reaction!
I recommend going the Oriental route, and pairing the Kung Fu Girl with Asian and Thai influenced dishes. The 12.5% alcohol shouldn’t pose too many problems.
$13’ish – Extremely impressive for a single-vineyard Riesling!
