2018 Vina Cobos Felino Chardonnay
Fruit was sourced from the Valle de Uco and Lujan de Cuyo appellations with maturation taking place in oak barrels for 4 months. Bright pale straw colour with a slight glimmer of green around the edges and a watery hue. Elevated peach and apricot aromas are complimented by notions of lemon butter and bees wax with some faint citrus and faint crème brulee notes also evident. Rich, highly textured ripe peach, apricot and honeycomb flavours have a generous creamy like feel yet the wine finishes with great freshness. Citrusy nougat characters, cashew and ginger spice appear on the back half. Excellent balance and a lengthy conclusion.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
A juicy and rich wine with sliced pear and apple with hints of caramel. Medium to full body, light butterscotch and some green apple at the finish. No malo. Vibrant acidity. Drink now.
