A lovely, inexpensive Chilean Riesling

Cono Sur Riesling

This is a nicely poised, brilliantly drinkable and well balanced Riesling from Cono Sur. Can’t think of a better one for the money (£6.45 from Tesco.com, although currently listed as out of stock).

Cono Sur Bicycle Riesling 2010 Central Valley, Chile
13.5% alcohol. Minerally, lemony nose leads to a sweetly fruited melon and citrus palate that is rounded and well balanced with good acidity. Nicely judged, this is quite serious with its fresh, mineral finish. 88/100 (£6.45 Tesco.com, Slurp.co.uk, although both don’t seem to have it at the moment)

    Comp Sur just seem to get it right at the moment, with all of their Bicycle range. The Viognier is also a gem, at around 7 and a half quid. A large scale producer knocking out wine of such standard that boutique producers would be envious.
