Viña Cono Sur Viognier Colchagua Valley 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.
