Costero Riesling 2009

Costero Riesling 2009

Viña Leyda is producing some of the most exciting wines coming out of Chile at the moment. This riesling is no exception, and on promo it provides really tasty value for money.

The vineyards are around 15km from the Pacific Ocean, which provides chilly winds to cool down the growing fruit. This helps retain both acidity and aromatics.

It’s an easy and gentle riesling, so if you think you don’t like riesling, I reckon this one is fab. enough to suggest you have another look.

Intense fresh lime flavours attack your palate in a zesty but not tingling manner, and give way to a gentle, smooth palate with a mouthfilling volume of lime and citrus fruit.  Excellent balance accentuates the moreish, pure fruit flavours. The wine is focused.  It’s not complex, but it is layered with unadulterated primary fruits, having been made entirely in stainless steel.
