Vina Cobos Felino 2016 (Argentina: Mendoza)

Name Vina Cobos Felino 2016
Varietal Chardonnay
Region Argentina: Mendoza
Notes "The just-bottled, screw-capped 2016 Felino Chardonnay was quite impressive... It fermented with indigenous yeasts with full malolactic, with 15% of the volume put into neutral French oak barrels and bottled seven months after the harvest. It's very fresh and varietal, with a nose that mixes white flowers and fruit and a balsamic twist. The palate is fresh and sharp, elegant with very clean flavors, showcasing the minerality of the soils. Is this the finest Felino Chardonnay to date?" (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Aromas of apple cider, peach and oak lead to a full palate. Flavors of melon and banana have a nutty quality, while this is stable on the finish, with tropical fruit and honeyed flavors. Drink now." (Wine Enthusiast) "An attractive wine, the 2016 Viña Cobos Felino Chardonnay speaks to the fact that the province of Mendoza can produce some wonderful white wines. This wine competes well in the arena with both the New and Old Worlds. Its ripe fruit and creaminess are nicely balanced out with its elegance and beautiful harmony on the palate. Enjoy with lightly-sauced sautéed chicken breast." (Wilfred Wong of
