Intro to Vina Cobos Felino Chardonnay –
The Vina Cobos Felino Chardonnay from Mendoza in Argentina is a lively, full-bodied Chardonnay with enticing aromas of white peach, golden delicious apple and guava that carry through as generous flavors on a satiny, mouth-filling palate. Citrus and mineral notes create a refreshing finish.
Full tasting note and wine making –
The Vina Cobos Felino Chardonnay from Mendoza has tropical aromas of nectarine, passion fruit, and a touch of grilled pineapple. The palate reveals citrus tones of grapefruit, lemon grass and delicate lemon peel on the finish, complementing the vibrant aromatic profile. It is texturally silky, with a well-integrated, lively acidity.
This Chardonnay was whole cluster pressed and fermented using natural yeasts. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel again using native yeasts. Only 5% of the wine is barrel aged for 7 months in French and American oak of which 15% is new, while the remainder of the wine was aged in steel tanks.
Viña Cobos has an extensive team of grape growers located in different outstanding winemaking regions in Mendoza. Luján de Cuyo is situated in the upper Mendoza Valley, where the river is half-way through its journey from the Andes to the eastern plains at altitudes of between 800m and 1,100 m which is ideal for growing Malbec.
The producer –
After visiting Argentina in 1989, Californian trail-blazer Paul Hobbs became deeply interested in both the terroir and Argentine culture, noticing the unique potential for Malbec and other varietals in the region. After meeting two kindred spirits, Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud, they founded Viña Cobos in 1997 and since then there has been no looking back. Utilising gnarly old vines, careful vineyard selection, very low yields and an unerring empathy for the raw materials, Viña Cobos craft intense yet balanced wines that showcase the elegance and beauty of this region. The wines from Cobos have branched into four different brands Felino, Bramare appellation, Bramare Single Vineyard and the super premium Cobos. Binding all of the wines from Viña Cobos is the true identity of each variety and the unique terroir of Mendoza, truly world class wines from a world class producer.
Drink with –
Certainly big enough for strong flavours and would be perfect with seared or roast shellfish like lobster and scallops or simply roast chicken.
