#45 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016
Winemaker’s Notes: Yet another terrific vintage. Pure, focused and mouthwatering. Citrus blossom, lime leaf, white peach intermingle with mineral that fills the palate. Carries on to a long refreshing finish.
90 Points 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.
90 Points Robert Parker: Juicy and lively, with lots citrus blossom, lychee and a touch of lime, the 2015 Riesling Kung Fu Girl is medium-bodied, vibrant and crisp on the palate, with terrific purity, integrated acidity and a great finish. It’s a steal at the price and will drink nicely for a year or more.
90 Points Wine Enthusiast: This is an über-aromatic wine, with appealing notes of white peach, jasmine, honeysuckle and lime. It’s lean in style, drinking off dry but balanced by racy acidity that stretches out the finish. Best Buy
