About This Wine

C'mon sing along now; “Everybody is Kung Fu fighting, Those cats were fast as lightning…” and, basically, if you cut a long story short, that’s how this wine came to being.

Winemaker Charles Smith was eating Chinese take-away, watching an old kung fu movie when the idea came to him - to make a killer white wine matched perfectly to Asian food.

Stone fruit, orange citrus, and core of minerality, with the RS perfectly balanced out by the bright, natural, cool-climate acidity.

Juicy, mouth-watering Riesling that is so easy to drink, just as intended.

From The Producer

It takes an unconventional winemaker to make a totally unexpected dry Riesling. One night, Charles was eating Chinese takeout and watching a fight scene in a notorious martial arts film when he had an idea: a killer white wine made to be paired with Asian food. Just like that, Kung Fu Girl was born. And it’s been kicking ass and taking names ever since.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
