Cono Sur Reserva Rielsing 2008, Bio Bio Valley

Tasted 17.04.11  with Sara, Howard and Astrid. 13.5%, about £9 UK retail. Demonstration again of the value of paying a £1 or two more to trade-up to 'reserva' level - this is more than a notch or two higher above the entry level Cono Sur. The reserva is made with selected bunches from a single vineyard. 3 months in stainless steel, no oak.
Bio Bio is the great news for cool climate varietals and is producing lovely wines. This wine is a pale straw colour, with the classic petrolly nose, hints of apricots and apples; crisp citrus notes and fresh acidity on the palate. A well made wine, very good value for money. Drink now, 16/20
