Cono Sur Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2013
Editorial Reviews for Cono Sur Organic Sauvignon Blanc
Riper than their regular bottling with a bit of guava, nice spice and a touch of roasted chili. Bright, dry and firm on entry with nice lime fruit up front followed by a hint of tropical fruit. Round, slightly grassy and showing a bit of currant fruit on the back end. A nice mineral wash with the fruit on the finish. 87pts
Sweet tart on the nose with some compost, herbaceous notes over a bit of pickle barrel. This is fairly low in acid, sort of lying across the palate with a nice low intensity core of blueberry and sour cherry fruit that leads to a short, slightly drying finish. 84pts
Very complex Pinot.
Love this wine. The liquor store, where I moved to, didn't carry it, so they brought it in for me. They decided to put a case on the shelf and they haven't been able to keep it stocked since. You can't beat the price for a 1.5L bottle.
Nice mix of chocolate and tobacco in the nose, very even. The mouth is fairly gentle, with indulgent red fruit and dark chocolate overtones. Really easy to please
A final step up in quality and price, the Ocio label is the further cream of the crop slice of the 20 barrels. Med+ ruby purple colour. Clean, youthful med+ nose of blood plums and dark strawberries. Med+ bodied wine with plush rich fruit flavours, but unlike the other wines is much more masculine in structure. There is good cleansing acidity, and the continual trend of soft tannins persists. Nice. Drink now – 2018. 91+/100.
A blend of the top 20 barrels from this single vineyard, it’s going to be hard to beat this price for such selection. A clear step up in quality compared to the Bicycle and Vision Pinot Noirs. Clear, deep ruby colour. Perfumed nose dominated by strawberries, then cherries and dark earth. A med+ bodied wine with cherry and plum fruit flavours. Nice clean acids and soft tannins round off a pleasant wine. 14.5% alc. Drink now – 2016. 89/100.
Tasted with 3 other S.B. that cost slightly more - Geyser Peak, Ch. Ste Michelle- nice nose - little fruit. Crisp and bright with citrus notes. Preferred this to the others at $8.
External Reviews for Cono Sur Organic Sauvignon Blanc
Rich and deep bright red color with a complex and developed nose that is governed by sweet wild fruit aromas, where notes of cherries and berries are enhanced by slight toasty hints. This Pinot definitely has a personality of its own. It's tasteful, with soft tannins and an excellent structure.
The strong Pacific Ocean influence and red clayish soils concur to foster this refreshing, crisp, pale yellow-green wine. In nose, very fine grapefruit, white flowers and citric hints combine with a perfect mineral character. It's an expressive Sauvignon
A fine 2011 sauvignon, this is fresh and light with subtle varietal scents of herbs and citrus. The wineandrsquo;s acidity pricks the tongue with a gentle tickle. An aperitif white to serve with sautandeacute;ed prawns.
This citrusy white has a pleasant grassy undertone to the white grapefruit pulp and light tangerine notes that stretch out in the cream-tinged finish. Drink now.
Bright straw. Green apple, lime and lemongrass on the nose, plus a light quinine nuance. Tangy and precise if not particularly complex, featuring good firm acidity providing definition and shape to the brisk citrus flavors. Closes on a brisk, dry no... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
