Cousiño-Macul Riesling Reserva 2007

Member Review by edink:

This is a charming wine. The name reminds me of gris-gris which is of phrase of West African origin and refers to the use of charms, usually several together stored in a cloth sack and worn around the neck or otherwise on the body. It also implies a gray sauvignon blanc which makes me think of a gritty wine but this is absolutely not that -- it's a fine wine (as in texture). The grape may be gray but the wine color is pale yellow. I''m out of battery and will have to come back later and finish this when I can recharge...

This wine has grown on me with each return to the bottle. Opened up the 2006 we brought back from the vineyard. Oaky, but not too much. Some grapefruit, best when it's very cold. Great by itself after dinner. Semi-dry I think.

This fruity Chardonnay has an attractive straw colour, with a few green tints typical of its youth. It has a clean expression of orange peel, mandarin and apple aromas with a tropical note of mango. In the background there are notes of jasmine and honeysuckle. Medium bodied, there are immediate juicy flavours of lemons, mandarins and, more subtly of limes. It is balanced, very vibrant and silky.

Wine Tasting NotesStraw color with beautiful floral and apple aromas that open to take on spicy, orange zest nuances. Medium-bodied, this Chardonnay is smooth with bright flavors of green apple, pear, and a hint of lime. Citrus and apple notes carry through into the crisp, refreshing finish. This vintage seems to pair extremely well with shellfish, especially lobster and king crab.

A dry Chilean Riesling that once again shows the versatility of this grape.
