Kung Fu Girl Riesling, launched in 2006, was the first of Charles Smith’s five brands he created to showcase quality Washington wine at affordable prices. He sold them to Constellation Brands in 2016 to focus on smaller projects, but the wines remain as fruit-forward and appealing as ever. This is a pretty, aromatic style, with a squeaky-clean palate of peach, jasmine and lime cordial with lovely freshness. The Velvet Devil Merlot is just as good.
White stone fruit, white peach, apricot, cool and delicious. Think Fuji apple, shiroplum, lime leaves. Focused and a very long, minerally finish. Kung Fu Girl....

Winery Charles Smith

Region: Washington State

Since it began in the 1820s, wine-production in Washington state has gone from strength to strength, with many of the finest United States wines coming out over the past twenty years hailing from this region. Today, the state is the second largest US producer of wines, behind California, with over forty thousand acres under vine. The state itself is split into two distinct wine regions, separated by the Cascade Range, which casts an important rain shadow over much of the area. As such, the vast majority of vines are grown and cultivated in the dry, arid desert-like area in the eastern half of the state, with the western half producing less than one percent of the state's wines where it is considerably wetter. Washington state is famed for producing many of the most accessible wines of the country, with Merlot and Chardonnay varietal grapes leading the way, and much experimentation with other varietals characterizing the state's produce in the twenty-first century.

Country: United States

Whilst there are several strains of native grape varietals in the United States, it was the introduction of the European species which prompted the country to begin producing wines on a large scale. Over the past few centuries, experimentation and cross-breeding has produced great successes in regards to the quality and suitability of the fruit grown in states such as California, Oregon, Washington and New York, and the past few decades have seen New World wines from the United States reach much higher standards. Arguably the finest United States wines have always come out of California, where the climate and terrroir is most suitable for fine wine production. The masterful blending of classic grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, amongst others including Syrah and Chardonnay, have had world beating results in recent years, prompting many to suggest that there has never been a better time for buying and drinking United States wines.
