Viña Cono Sur Viognier Colchagua Valley 2010
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.
Editorial Reviews for Viña Cono Sur Viognier Colchagua Valley
Very floral and perfumed on the nose with nettles and pine needles adding layers of complexity. There’s moist earth and sweet fruit here as well. This totally smells like walking in a meadow after a rainfall. Soft on entry with good acidity but enough richness to makes this feel a little flat. The mid-palate shows moderately rich dark berry fruit with some mineral accents but lacks the complexity and excitement of the nose. The acids pop out quickly on the finish which is short and thin. 87pts
Fruit is from the Leyda Campo Lindo Estate in the San Antonio Valley and spent 10 months in barrel.A med+ ruby colour. Clean med+ youthful notes of raspberry, cherry candy and rose. Another pretty med-bodied wine with pretty fruit flavours, it’s got a better tannin structure than the Bicycle. Drink now – 2014. 87/100.
Tasted with 3 other S.B. that cost slightly more - Geyser Peak, Ch. Ste Michelle- nice nose - little fruit. Crisp and bright with citrus notes. Preferred this to the others at $8.
Lovely with seafood. A well balanced white with a nice citrus bite
External Reviews for Viña Cono Sur Viognier Colchagua Valley
Light straw. Spicy lime and pink grapefruit aromas are complicated by white flowers and quinine. Firm and juicy, with deep citrus and pear skin flavors, light body and a brisk finish. Clean, vibrant and very easy to drink.
Bright and refreshing, this sauvignon offers juicy flavors of lime and pineapple enhanced by generous acidity. Pour it with sushi.
Cono Sur is a modern, innovative winery in Chile that sourced grapes from the best regions. Superstar winemaker Adolfo Hurtado is named Winemaker of the year it seems almost on an annual basis. He leads the team that creates this fresh and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc best buy with all temoperature-controlled stainless steel fermentation and aging. Bright citrus, grapefruit zest, white pepper and lemon/lime liven up your palate and make a great match for seafood and grilled chicken.
Light but focused, showing gooseberry and sweet pea notes, with a modest finish. Drink now.
Open-knit aromas of apple, pear, green melon and mineral are perfectly good, while the palate is high in acid and kick. Flavors of grapefruit, generic citrus and grass are solid, as is the finish, which keeps its line. A snappy, alert, easygoing wine.
Bright straw. Green apple lime and lemongrass on the nose plus a light quinine nuance. Tangy and precise if not particularly complex featuring good firm acidity providing definition and shape to the brisk citrus flavors. Closes on a brisk dry note with good clarity. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Chile has become the "go-to" place for awesome valued wines, and Cono Sur is no exception. Notes of fresh-cut grass and a hint of green pepper mixed with lime, grapefruit and other citrus aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied this wine is crisp to its core - I can almost feel the summer breeze while drinking it. The Cono Sur Sauvignon Blanc just oozes freshness at such a fantastic price I could drink it everyday. Yum!
