User Reviews for Cono Sur 20 Barrels Limited Edition Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaker's Notes:

Cono Sur Vineyards & Winery was founded in 1993, with the vision of producing premium, expressive and innovative wines conveying the spirit of the New World. Our name refers to the company’s geographic position; it represents wines proudly made in South America’s Southern Cone, on whose western edge lies Chile and its gifted wine valleys. Our logo also evokes a freehand drawing of the silhouette of South America. Right from the start Cono Sur applied new ideas and technology to winemaking traditional methods. Our main goal, therefore, is to create expressive and innovative wines from the world’s southernmost land. 20 Barrels started life in 1996 as an expression of the best 20 Barrels of Pinot Noir which Cono Sur produced, and was then extended along similar lines to other varietals as quality levels were achieved. They are for the most part single vineyard wines from the best terroirs available for each variety. They are harvested with yields on a par with or below those of their classic counterparts in Burgundy 1er Cru, Bordeaux (top AOCs) and Sancerre. The 20 Barrels Sauvignon Blanc has a mineral heart that speaks of this wine’s origin, only a couple of kilometres away from the Pacific Ocean. Bright and crisp, this is a wine of great intensity and aromatic persistence. Citrus notes of grapefruit against a mineral background are enhanced by soft traces of green herbs. An expressive and amazing wine. In mouth it’s fresh, elegant, balanced, juicy and delicate. Pair with light first courses, ideally green salads or seafood, white meats, light sauces and vegetarian dishes, such as a vegetarian loaf or lasagne.
