Winemaker Notes

#94 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Best Buys of 2017

This organic blend is a bright, clean intense ruby red. On the nose it has a good intensity of aromas with notes of red fruits, cherry, plum and hints of chocolate, coffee, olives, spices and tobacco. On the palate it is full, juicy and smooth with good tannins, and a persistent and fresh finish.

Pairs best with red and white meats, cheeses, nuts and sauces.

Wine Enthusiast
Saucy black-fruit aromas are beefy, dense and spicy. In the mouth, this blend of Cabernet, Carmenère and Syrah is chunky, with hard tannins. Herbal, spicy black-fruit flavors include tea and coffee notes, while the finish tastes herbal and peppery, with a leafy aftertaste attributable to the Carmenère.

Cono Sur, Colchagua Valley, Rapel Valley, Chile
Image of winery
Cono Sur Vineyards and Winery was founded in 1993, with the vision of producing premium, expressive and innovative wines conveying the spirit of the new world. Their name refers to the company's geographic position; it represents wines proudly made in South America's Southern Cone, on whose western edge lays Chile and its gifted wine valleys. Their logo is a freehand drawing of the silhouette of South America. Right from the start, Cono Sur applied new ideas and technology to winemaking traditional methods. Nowadays, Cono Sur's original claim, "No family trees, no dusty bottles, just quality wine," continues to inspire them towards quality, innovation, style and creativity.

Colchagua Valley

View all wine

Well-regarded for intense and exceptionally high quality red wines, the Colchagua Valley is situated in the southern part of Chile’s Rapel Valley, with many of the best vineyards lying in the foothills of the Coastal Range.

Heavy French investment and cutting-edge technology in both the vineyard and the winery has been a boon to the local viticultural industry, which already laid claim to ancient vines and a textbook Mediterranean climate.

The warm, dry growing season in the Colchagua Valley favors robust reds made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Malbec and Syrah—in fact, some of Chile’s very best are made here. A small amount of good white wine is produced from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
