From the bottle:
“The Cono Sur vineyard workers travel around our estate by bicycle, tending the vines using natural methods, in order to produce the best quality grapes. Our Bicicleta wines are a tribute to them.
Winemaker’s Notes: An intensely aromatic wine with citrus fruit and soft white flower aromas together with a palate of grapefruit and mineral flavors.
Food Pairing: This is the perfect wine to serve with seafood and white meat dishes, particularly with Thai influences.
The 2012 Cono Sur Bicicleta Riesling begins with pleasant floral, grapefruit and other citrus aromas. Tasting the wine reveals flavors of lemon/lime soda, fresh citrus with good acidity and a lively texture with some nice mineral notes. This is a semi-dry, not super sweet, Riesling which is a bit unusual for the price. It’s not a blow your socks off kind of wine, but for 6 bucks this is one nice, easy to drink bottle. It ends with a tangy finish.
