Kung Fu Girl 2008 Riesling Washington State
At $12, the Kung Fu Girl 2008 Riesling Washington State (12.5%) offers a terrific quality-to-price ratio. In the glass, this Washington riesling was a clear, light straw color, delivering notes of pineapple, citrus, honeysuckle and then a bit of Bazooka bubble gum (no kidding).
In the mouth, the Kung Fu Girl riesling has a fullness to it, but not viscous or cloying. The floral, honey characteristics are first evident, followed by well-balanced, crisp acidity, and then a lasting finish that seemed to bring all of these disparate pieces back together.
We enjoyed this wine on its own before dinner and then with our meal. A very food-friendly riesling at a great price. I would definitely purchase another bottle or two, three, again.
