Natalie's Score: 87/100

This delightful bubbly is a blend of Chardonnay 90%, Pinot Noir 6% and Riesling 4%. Lovely aromas of green apples with a toasty, creamy texture. Simply stunning for the money. Great aperitif. Stock up for all your celebrations and parties with this one.

Sparkling White food pairings: scallops, pan seared calamari and pastas in light cream sauces.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Holly Bruns rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

A bit of Riesling in the mix gives this bubbly a delicate profile with mineral, honey, lemon on the nose and a crisp, bitter finish. The mousse is very lively in the glass but then mellows on the palate. Fairly well balanced and a great warm afternoon sipping wine, if you're feeling fancy.
Cono Sur Sparkling is lively and
radiant. Its aromas reveal great
fruit expression mingled with citrus
notes, white fl owers and a hint
of honey. Juicy and fresh, Cono
Sur Sparkling is delicate and wellbalanced
with great complexity.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
