Charles Smith Wines 'Kung Fu Girl' Riesling 2016, Washington State, USA
Fleshy, plump, ripe and varietal aromas of Riesling with sweet pear, apple and citrus, underlying line of minerality. Crunchy, fresh, lively and fruity on the palate with green apple, lemon and barely sugar flavours; plenty of acidity adds a fine texture and dryness on the finish. Balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2026.
Charles Smith Wines 'Eve' Chardonnay 2015, Washington State, USA
Lifted, fresh and elegant bouquet of tree fruits and citrus, quite steely yet familiar with white and yellow peach then apple. Dry on the palate with flavours that reflect the nose - citrus and white fleshed tree fruits, warming alcohol and refreshing acidity; mild to moderate oak flavours with some spice and vanilla notes. Drink through 2020 - food recommended.
Charles Smith Wines 'Boom Boom' Syrah 2015, Washington State, USA
Attractive bouquet of pepper-spiced dark berries, toasty wood and dark spices - clove and baked vanilla. Ripe, fruity and dry on the palate with flavours of sweet dark berries, a touch of brown sugar, soft pepper spice and toasted wood. Abundant yet easy to assimilate tannins, medium acidity, balanced, well made and ready to drink. Loads of fun - enjoy from now and through 2024.
