Tasting Notes

This is one of the cheaper wines available in Tesco, although I mistakenly ordered a 50 cl bottle at £3.75. It is also available in a standard 75 cl bottle at £4.51. It’s decent value either way.

The wine is produced in the Valle Central region of Chile by Viña Cono Sur S.A. and imported to the United Kingdom by CYT UK Ltd. It’s a mixture of Sauvignon Blanc and Pedro Ximenez grapes into a refreshing white wine that is supposedly inspired by the coast.

According to the blurb on the rear label, there are ‘aromas and flavours of grapefruit, lime and gooseberry’ and it goes well with seafood and salad. We found it to be perfectly drinkable and would be happy to order it again as it’s very reasonably priced.
