Taste profile from the winemaker: "Bright, appealing yellow-green colour. A wine of deleicate grace and aromatic intensity. The nose is fresh and crisp, with citrus and floral notes. In mouth citric flavours like grapefruit mingle in with mineral hints. This riesling is fresh and young, with great volume and minerality."

ABC Wines review: This riesling has aromas of tree fruit, notably apple, with floral fruit blossom notes. The palate is rather complex with hints of sweetness balanced by mineral crispness. The finish is moderate and somewhat dry. An interesting wine to serve with sandwiches or to include in a picnic basket. Our score: On the high side of Average.

Winery website: ViƱa Cono Sur. Note: Several rieslings are mentioned on the winemaker's website, but a "limited release" was not found. The depicted bottle and the taste profile are taken for the one closest to the wine reviewed.
