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

Funky nose, with sulfur and formaldehyde in the aroma. Very distinctive, but not too unpleasant. There's a nuttiness and chocolatiness hiding there. The mouth is somewhat sharply acidic, with an astringent bitterness. Tart raspberry finish.

8 months aging in barrel and 8 months in tank. Med ruby colour. Clean, med+ nose of cherries and strawberries. There is some pretty fruit flavours here that are true to Pinot Noir, but the tannins are a little too subtle for my liking. Drink now. 86/100.

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.

This is the kid on the tricycle. The entry level wine is a simple, med-bodied Pinot Noir with aromas of raspberry, plum and strawberry. Slightly smoky. Clean sweet fruit flavours, refreshing acidity and fine tannins. What more can you ask for for under a tenner?! Drink now. 85/100.

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.

Light color and light mouth feel. Slight touch of citrus on the nose. Tastes of plum and cherry with a short, tart finish. Crisp but not much sustenance.

Very friendly, with effusive cherry and licorice snap notes backed by a lively finish. Drink now.

Pinot Noir is trickling in from the Southern Hemisphere; particularly noteworthy is this line of value-oriented Pinots from Chile. With voluptuous texture and bright red fruits all in the right place, Cono Sur's balanced, California-style Pinot puts the emphasis on freshness and ripe fruit.

Cool scents of strawberry and tealeaf fill this soft, light pinot noir. For smoked salmon.


External Review

Aromas of cherry and raspberry bring a slight earthy stemminess, while the palate is light and zesty, with semisharp plum and pie cherry fruit flavors and a dash of red sucking candy. Medium-long at best on the finish, with citrus, tang and pepper notes.

Winemaker's Notes:

Dressed in fresh purple red colour, this is a voluptuous Pinot Noir with rich fruit notes of cherry, raspberry, plum and strawberry – a red fruit party! – enhanced by subtle smoked hints. In mouth sweet fruit notes stand out, and its fine tannins give it a great texture and a mouth filling structure. Balanced and New World styled, this is a wine of personality and elegance. Sexy, pure and simple, it’s a young and refreshing Pinot. Our Cono Sur Pinot Noir is a great choice for all sorts of pasta, grilled poultry, seafood and mild fish. It’s also excellent when accompanying dishes served with pesto sauces. If ordering in, mushroom pizza and sushi go great with this wine.
