Our main goal is to create expressive and innovative wines from one of the world's southernmost wine regions. 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. Our quest is to present the world with the finest grape expression and character, from Chile’s varied wine regions. Right from the start Cono Sur applied the newest ideas and technology to winemaking’s traditional methods.

The nose starts out tight with hints of lime and white floral notes, but a little air reveals light peach and bright apple aromas. Light and almost elegant in the mouth, this is really a featherweight wine, almost fully dry with apple fruit flavors topped with a light, glossy hint of lime glaze. The finish is quite modest if fresh. Ultimately there is not that much to this wine, but what is here is fresh and delightfully easy to drink. 84pts

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

Really aromatic pretty notes of jasmine, floral. On the palate very fruity with moderate plus acidity, rich medium plus body, moderate plus intensity of fruit flavors, moderate plus alcohol and a long finish.

Rich blackberry aromas balanced well against dark earthy notes with hints of oak and vanilla. There are some tropical fruit qualities as well. The body approaches kindly with rising mountain berry acidity on the finish. It's a well executed pinot with moderate complexity.

I disagree with some of the editor's remarks. I have stocked this in my home for more than a year, and find it to be refreshingly full-bodied, varietally faithful, and very juicily flavorful, in a dry, Alsatian style, but, yes, simpler with less restraint and earthy terroir. I am very fond of it, especially for the price!

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.

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.

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.

Mild strawberry and raspberry aromas are fresh and snappy. All totaled, this is light on its feet and not overly demanding; flavors of red plum, raspberry and oak finish with hints of mint and anise along with lifting acidity.

Light red. Textbook pinot scents of red berries and musky herbs. Light-bodied strawberry and raspberry flavors show good clarity and modest depth. Pleasantly fruity, straightforward pinot with good cut and subtle sweetness on the finish.

An open and honest version, delivering fresh cherry, currant, game and light mineral notes on a medium-bodied, easy-drinking frame. A hard to find value for this varietal. 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.

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

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.

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