Viña Cono Sur Viognier Colchagua Valley 2010
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

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.
So you're invited to a friend's house for dinner. You are not sure what they are preparing, but you want to bring a nice bottle of wine that would go well with a hot summer day. You stop at your local Premier Group store (three locations to choose from), where a very knowledgeable wine associate recommends this wonderful Chilean Sauvignon Blanc. Expecting to pay much more for a bottle of this quality, you are surprised to see it for under ten. It's a good thing you bring two of them because it is a hit at the dinner party. Everyone was so impressed with your selection they all assume when it comes to wine, you are a Cono Sur!
Straightforward punchbowl aromas greet you, and beyond that there's melon to the nose. The palate is decidedly softer and rounder than Cono Sur's higher-tier SBs, while the flavors run toward familiar lemon and green apple. Finishes sweet but comfortable. Perfectly good and competent.
