Cono Sur Reserva Chardonnay Cono Sur Vino Blanco Chile 2006

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. This Chardonnay achieves a great balance between a citrus side and complex minerality: a combination that makes it quite an extraordinary wine. Bright golden yellow-green colour, the wine has notes of citrus fruits and white peach and a slight toasty flavour, which suggests the oak aging. This is a mineral, elegant and refined Chardonnay signed by its lively grace, balanced acidity and fresh, yet complex palate.

Pleasantly surprised by this <$10 PN. Aromas of raspberry, cherry. Palate of the same, with some earthiness to the mid-palate and surprising weight for a pinot at this price point. Nice silky texture, and a shortish finish that is juicy rather than spicy. Certainly nothing to be ashamed to serve at a big party, the price is right. We had with pepper and romano cheese polenta with marsala mushrooms on top. Went very well with that peppery, flavorful, and smooth-textured dish. Have corked remainder with preservative and will check again in 2 days. Score may need to go up.

Cono Sur Viognier is a great bang-for-buck white from a company in Chile dedicated to making expressive, premium local wines. This golden-hued Viognier packs impressively full flavors of peach, apricot and citrus with delicate white flower aromatics. A natural match with shellfish and Asian takeout.
