A couple weeks ago my good friend, well, sister, really, Jessica and I went to dinner and like girls often do, we had a glass of wine with dinner. Steak was my menu selection, but I rarely follow the "pairing rules." I drink what I like regardless of what I'm eating. She chose Cabernet with her prime rib, and I chose something completely off the wall- Kung Fu Girl Riesling 2013. Made by Charles Smith Wines, this Washington wine has to be the best Riesling I have EVER had. Seriously.
This wine is no blend- it is 100% Riesling grapes grown in the Evergreen Vineyards in Ancient Lakes. Riesling has always been my favorite white grape and this wine really shines. I get loads of stone fruits like peaches and a very lovely hint of mineral tones. Beautiful blonde in the glass, it has 12% alcohol and the perfect "bite." Perfect, perfect, perfect bottle. Would have been great with the Dragon Noodles I made the other night!
I also had a chance to test out my new wine chiller I recently got! It's an ATI Wine Chiller with a freezable insert and it chills wine QUICK! I found mine at a garage sale, so I don't even know if they still sell them- if you ever see one- grab it!
Sorry for the short post.......but I just really want to finish this wine!!
