Kung Fu Girl Riesling by Charles Smith

If you’ve been in to enjoy our new English’s Tasting Menu and opted to indulge in our wine pairings, you will have tried a very special glass of white wine with your lobster tortellini; Kung Fu Girl. Produced by self-taught winemaker Charles Smith, this Riesling wine has tones of apricot, kumquat, nectarine and lime leaves, with a great mid-palate intensity and a long minerally finish.

A fairly new addition to our wine list (we added Kung Fu Girl around six months ago), it’s been an award-winning choice across the globe for a number of years. Three years in a row it was awarded Wine Spectator’s “Best Value” wine (2009, 2010, 2011) and in 2010 they awarded it 90 Points (out of 100).
