Cousino Macul Dona Isadora Riesling
Chile, Maipo Valley - 2013
A wine with an interesting past..! In the 19th Century Luis Cousino and his wife Isidora brought some Riesling vine grafts back from Germany from which the vines found in the Vineyards today are descended. This is a true Riesling with a touch of the Chilean sun; Fresh green apple, lime and hints of guava in the bouquet mingle with aromatic notes of spice and candied fruit. Crisp and fruity on the palate with steely mineral tones and a fine structure which carries through the citrus and melon flavours and slight hint of ginger to the long finish. A superb food wine, the Isidora Riesling is a great partner for Asiatic cuisine such as Thai and Chinese where it compliments the sweet & sour and spicy elements of these dishes beautifully. This wine also works brilliantly with traditional pork dishes, oysters, seafood dishes and paté.
