Howdy, wine drinker.
I’m Jacob from I Want You to Drink More Wine.
Today, I’ll be sharing an honest wine review and suggesting a pairing that complements this wine perfectly.
Today, we’re going to be pairing a Washington State dry Riesling and a pizza, but it’s not your ordinary pizza.
This pairing, I think, is going to knock your socks off.
Let’s go ahead and check out our wine.
Charles Smith Kung Fu Girl Riesling 2014
We’ve got a 2014 Kung Fu Girl.
This is going to be a dry Riesling out of Washington State.
Now, the reason I chose this wine is the label.
But also, I’ve been wanting to do a Washington State Riesling for a while.
And I wanted to do something interesting, because I’ve had this bottle of wine for a little bit.
But I said, we’re going to save this wine for an interesting, exact, different pairing.
So what I have in store for you is different.
What do you think we’re going to pair?
Check it out–a bacon and egg pizza.
The base is not tomato sauce.
It’s actually crème fraiche.
So it was a fun experience, very intricate in how we made the egg.
I’m looking forward to trying this, both of these individually, then together.
Let’s go ahead and take a swig of our wine and see how the wine is.
It’s a decent wine for the price–inexpensive, I’ll tell you about that a little bit.
Let’s go ahead and try the pizza.
The flavors are awesome.
I don’t know if you could see it, but we have nice pieces of bacon on the pizza as well, and there’s brie and mozzarella.
So I was not expecting that.
I thought the pairing was going to be good, but the acidity and everything cuts through that cheese.
This is a rock-on, solid pairing.
You have to try this.
Get that bacon and egg pizza pairing–the recipe right there on Vivino 3.8. $12.49 average price for this Kung Fu Girl Riesling out of Washington State.
Let me know.
Many buying options.
And until our next video, take care.
