Viña Cono Sur Riesling Visión 2003
TASTING NOTES AN ELEGANT, VOLUPTUOUS PINOT NOIR WITH A DEEP, CLEAN AND BRIGHT RUBY RED COLOUR. THE NOSE CARRIES THROUGH WITH AMAZING FINESSE AND COMPLEXITY, BRIMMING WITH NOTES OF FRESH CHERRY, STRAWBERRY, RASPBERRY AND PLUM, WHICH MINGLE WITH LEATHER AND SMOKED HINTS IN THE BACKGROUND. OUTSTANDING EXTRACTION, DELICIOUSLY LONG AND SOFT FINISH. THIS SOPHISTICATED AND COMPLEX WINE IS THE RESULT OF NEW WORLD FRUIT VINIFIED IN THE CENTENNIAL BURGUNDIAN FASHION. FOOD PAIRING GENERALLY KNOWN AS A SEXY WINE, PINOT IS A NATURAL CHOICE FOR SOME OF THE LATEST CULINARY TRENDS. FUSION CUISINE, FOR EXAMPLE, GOES VERY WELL WITH PINOT?S VERSATILITY. IT WILL ALSO ENHANCE THE FLAVOUR OF WHOLE GRAINS, ALL KINDS OF MUSHROOMS AND HERBS, WHICH MAKES IT A FAVOURITE FOR VEGETARIANS, EVEN IF CLOSELY FOLLOWED BY SUSHI FANS. IN BROADER TERMS, THIS IS A WINE THAT WILL MAKE ANY WHITE MEAT LOOK GOOD; ALSO SOUPS, STEWS AND FLAVOURFUL FISH DISHES. AMONG CHEESES, IT PREFERS THE DRY AND TOUGH, THINK EDAM
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
For 12.99 this is a near perfect wine. For the Vision line Cono Sur grafted Viognier plants on to 50+ year old Vhenin Blanc root stock. The result is a superb white wine with intense aromas of wildflowers and white flesh peaches. Pair with crabcakes, or white fish dishes.
Can't beat the value on this pinot. I'm a fan of nearly all Cono Sur's wines for their consistantly good quality and reasonable price point.
My first glass of Cono Sur was at Amelie in San Francisco. Been in love ever since....
