Two Washington State Whites to stock up on the Summer, Charles Smith Wines

With the sun rising higher in the sky and the temperatures rising as well, it is time to break out the bottles of white wine to keep cool.

Kung Fu Girl, Riesling, Charles Smith Wines, Ancient Lakes, Columbia Valley, Washington, 2015 is pale greyish gold in the glass. Fresh clean aromas of orange blossom, juicy white peach, mint leaves, and wild flowers all backed by minerals. The palate is alive with lemon and lime peels, white peach, and apricot balanced with mint and minerals. The Kung Fu Girl, Riesling has a sweet mid palate that is tempered by bright acidity that rounds out the clean mouth feel.

Enjoy the Kung Fu Girl, Riesling with your favorite sushi. Peruvian tiraditios would also be a perfect match. Spicy Thai dishes are also a natural match for the Kung Fu Girl, Riesling.

Eve, Chardonnay, Charles Smith Wines, Matrawa, Washington, 2014 is clear golden yellow. Aromas of pear, Red Delicious apple, rose petals and minerals tease the mouth of what’s to come. The palate is filled with tangy tropical pineapple, apple, and tart lemon with a smooth mouth feel backed by minerals. The Eve, Chardonnay is very refreshing and delicious. A satisfying clean tasting chardonnay that lets the fruit do the talking, the wine is aged for 5 months aged on the lees for extra smoothness.

Sautéed chicken thighs with spring vegetables in a white wine reduction, The Eve, Chardonnay may be one of the best chardonnays I’ve tasted in a long time. Make sure to stock up with plenty for the summer season.
