2018 Felino Chardonnay by Vina Cobos (750ml)

Chardonnay from Mendoza, Argentina


Pale silver-yellow. Classic Chardonnay fruit aromas of peach, fresh apricot and pear are complicated by sexy nuances of flowers, hazelnut and spices. Rich, sweet and ripe on the palate, with just enough framing acidity to maintain its balance; the wine's oak component is under control. Nicely concentrated for a Chardonnay at this price point. The slightly phenolic finish features a touch of salinity and some dusty minerality.

Peach and nectarine aromas are fresh and show hints of sea shell and wool. This feels crisp and stony despite being fairly full in body, while apple flavors are lightly spiced and more basic than complex. Acidic zest keeps this lively on the finish.

Dried green herbal notes flank the crisp white fruit flavors. Hints of ruby grapefruit show on the finish. Drink now. 17,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
