Kung Fu Girl Riesling 2017

Columbia Valley, Washington, United StatesThe Evergreen Vineyard is now 21 years old and producing high-quality fruit on steep cliffs high above the Columbia River in the state’s newest AVA, Ancient Lakes. This wine has been amazingly consistent over the years and is a terrific choice for those who like their Riesling fresh and tangy. 2016 again offers pure fruit flavours of apple and nectarine with a subtle undercurrent of stony minerality. The palate is equally lively and easily carries the fruit to all parts of the palate. Apples, pears and limes dominate its sweet fruit, and finishes with a small bump of bitterness for complexity. Barbecue ribs or chicken work here and so does a spicy South Asian dish.
