I’m thinking about starting a Riesling fan club. Why? Because every one that I’ve tasted so far this year has been extremely good. The 2007 Jekel Riesling that we reviewed on Febuary 26th was a monster but the others that I’ve tried have not been too far behind. The 2008 Cono Sur is another terrific Riesling. We paired this wine with a spicy southwestern style chicken dish and this Riesling was explosive. It has intense citrus flavors and a terrific zesty, dry finish. This was our second reviewed wine from Cono Sur. You may recall, our review of their Sauvignon Blanc earlier this year – we liked that wine a lot too. But this Riesling is just downright awesome for the money. It’s not quite a 4 Star wine, but it comes pretty close! The 2008 Cono Sur Riesling is a great value-priced Riesling. I look forward to trying the other wines that Cono Sur has to offer.
