"Always delicious, as well as an insane value..."
-Robert Parker, 90 Points (for 2014 vintage)
Once again, we're happy to offer up this delightful dry Washington Riesling. This wine is again an "insane value" as Parker describes, and most of our staff and customers can attest and show the receipts of multi-case purchases over the past 5 vintages - during which time this wine has made it in to Wine Spectator's Top 100 list THREE times!

In the top tier of producers in Washington State, Charles Smith fashions singular, exotic wines that never lack for richness or texture. His Riesling, though whimsically named "Kung Fu Girl", is certainly something to take very seriously. This vintage marks a THIRD time being ranked in Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines in 2014 and 2013 AND garnering a "Best Value" designation over five years in a row.

It is an absurd value and a perfect white to dance across the dinner table as well as to simply enjoy on the back porch now that the sun has finally come out. We're down to our last few cases, too, so please place your order promptly!

Cheers,
-The Artisan Wine Hunters

-  Wine Spectator:

"Tangy and zingy, with lively acidity that balances against gobs of ripe pear and apricot flavors, carrying through the long, lime-accented finish. Drink now through 2020. 160,000 cases made". -HS (Dec 31, 2016)
 
90 Points Robert Parker (2014 vintage):

"Always delicious, as well as an insane value, the 2014 Riesling Kung Fu Girl offers lots of exotic citrus, lychee and minty notes in a medium-bodied, delicious, vibrant profile on the palate. Downright gulpable, yet with plenty of classic Riesling flair, buy this beauty by the case and drink it over the coming year or so." - Jeb Dunnuck (Jun 2015)

91 Points, Rank #43 Top 100 of 2014 Wine Spectator (2013 vintage):

"Crisp and sleek, with juicy, expansive nectarine and peach flavors that play against citrusy acidity, finishing with zing and a sense of softness that lets the finish keep singing. Drink now through 2020." - HS (Dec 15, 2014)

Retail Price: $15.00

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The Cantele 2013 Salice Salentino Riserva shows a greater level of depth and finesse compared to many of its peers. The wine is packed tight with blackberry fruit, with Maraschino cherry, plum and prune in abundance. The wine is chewy and rich for sure, but it also provides an authentic and generous portrait of a red wine from Puglia. A spicy beef or lamb dish would make the perfect pairing partner." - Monica Larner (Aug 30, 2016)
