Vintage: 2018

“Felino” is a 100% Chardonnay that was hand-harvested in vineyards in Valle de Uco and Lujan de Cuyo.  The fruit is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and then aged for 4 months in oak barrels of various ages.

 

To the eye it is clear yellow with green hues. The nose is fruity, expressing tropical aromas like mango, pineapple and citrus fruits. The palate delights with green apple, peach and subtle notes of vanilla. It’s a fresh Chardonnay with good structure and persistence.

 

“Felino is pretty much a Uco Valley wine these days, with just 5% from Luján de Cuyo. Now under screwcap, it’s a tangy, bright, subtly wooded Chardonnay with citrus and pear flavours and a twist of nutmeg spice. 2019-22.”
