Felino Chardonnay 2018

Mendoza, ArgentinaThis chardonnay has evolved over the years, rightfully shedding some oak and focusing on fruit and lees management. The site is fruit is grown in semi-arid Valle de Uco and Luján de Cuyo at 1000 metres above sea level. It spends a short four months in oak post ferment leading to a creamy textured chardonnay with baked green apple, poached pears, and butter with a touch of vanillin on the finish. Finally, a New World crowd pleaser chardonnay fans love. It’s all good, but there is plenty of room to lean this out a bit and let it soar.Tasted: 01 March 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 32.00 select private retailers AB 22.00 select private retailers ON 19.00 LCBO Producer: Viña CobosDistributors: Authentic Wine and Spirits Merchants
