TASTING NOTES – Elegant, expressive and dressed in a green-yellow coloring, this Sauvignon Blanc impresses with its citrus notes of grapefruit and green apple, which mingle in with herbal hints. In the mouth, its freshness and balance stand out in particular, along with its citric notes and pleasant mineral ending.
TALES FROM A TASTING
Before I even twisted off the cap, I knew exactly what I wanted to pair with this happy bottle of wine- seared scallops with spicy melon salsa. Sauvignon Blanc pretty much always goes well with seafood. The dish balances sweetness with the heat of Serrano peppers. The citrus and herbal notes jump onto that balancing scale for a perfect pairing!
Now, about the wine…
For all of you New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc guzzling folks, this is a great alternative to your Kim Crawford or Oyster Bay. There is a little more minerality with the Cono Sur Bicicleta, as it is steel barrel aged.
Let’s talk about that word Bicicleta in the label name. I’m sure you’ve all figured out in English the word is bicycle; not a huge stretch there. Perhaps you also noticed the lovely embossed bicycle on the front of the label. Why all this focus on bikes? That’s the vehicle that helps to facilitate these grapes becoming wine.
Vineyard tenders ride up and down the rows of Sauvignon Blanc grapes on bicycles, tending to the grapes and giving them some old-fashioned love.
If you’re a new world Sauvignon Blanc lover and want to stock up on a bargain wine, Cono Sur Bicicleta is a must at just $9.99 a bottle!!! Head to Post Road Liquors and tell them we said, “Hi!”
