Cono Sur Bicicleta Pinot Grigio
2014
Chile
750ml
14% ABV
$9.90 (LCBO)

This is an example of why under ten dollar wines rule.
For the life of me I thought I had reviewed this wine before. There is a whole series of these wines from Chile called Cono Sur.
Get it. Cono Sur. Southern cone. Look at a map…
These wines are all good. They are ubiquitous at any reception. I seem to recall Konrad Ejbich recommending this series of wine on a CBC radio show. I have drank this wine but never reviewed it.
I usually drink the Cono Sur red wines but this white Pinot Grigio is a very nice fruity example of this wine. There is a bit more flavour in this one than in similarly priced Italian Pinot Grigios and it finishes well with no after taste.
This is a great wine – but if you plan to impress a host with your largess by bringing it, beware – they know this wine well.
