Charles Smith Washington State
In 2006, Charles Smith created Charles Smith Wines: The Modernist Project, which centres around the trend that most people generally consume wine without delay. The intent is to create wines to be enjoyed now, but with typicity of variety (Merlot that tastes like Merlot) and true to the place of origin. The wines are full of flavour, balanced, and approachable.
Contents of Case:
• 1 x Kung Fu Girl Riesling - It takes an unconventional winemaker to make a totally unexpected dry Riesling. One night, Charles was eating Chinese takeout and watching a fight scene in a notorious martial arts film when he had an idea: a killer white wine made to be paired with Asian food. Just like that, Kung Fu Girl was born. White peach, mandarin orange and apricot are delivered with a core of minerality that makes this dry Riesling shimmer with energy and freshness. Another epic vintage of Kung Fu Girl. Pairs well with Spicy ramen, Sriracha pork tacos and Chinese takeout.
• 1 x Velvet Devil Merlot - A critically acclaimed soft, juicy, savoury medium-bodied red wine made predominantly from Merlot grapes. Blackberry, black cherry, cedar, tobacco and earthy notes on the nose and the palate. Easy drinking but will pair very well with red meat dishes and medium to mature cheeses.
