VINA COBOS FELINO MENDOZA CHARDONNAY
From vineyard sites in Luján de Cuyo, Maipu and Valle de Uco at altitudes of 3,254 to 3,303 feet above sea level. The diurnal temperature variations, long growing season and altitude give a tremendous purity of fruit. These sites are semi desert and irrigation is an essential.
This Chardonnay was whole cluster pressed and fermented using natural yeasts. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel again using native yeasts. Only part of the wine is barrel aged while the remainder of the wine was aged in steel tanks.
Clear yellow with green hues. The nose is fruity, expressing tropical aromas like mango, pineapple, and citrus. On the palate, there are delightful flavours of green apple, peach, and subtle notes of vanilla. There is freshness as well as structure and persistence.
Certainly big enough for strong flavours and would be perfect with seared or roast shellfish like lobster and scallops or simply roast chicken
