The Felino Cabernet Sauvignon is ruby red in colour with pleasant aromas of ripe red fruit and a fresh touch of tobacco, cocoa and spices like nutmeg. Judging by the freshness of the wine, you may think there is some Cabernet Franc in this, but it is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is nicely concentrated on the palate, round and smooth. It has a fairly long finish which resonates fresh red fruit.
Fermented by selected and native yeasts in eight and 17-ton closed-top stainless steel tanks. Aged in American oak barrels (roughly 10% new), for nine months. Bottled unfined.
Argentina is known almost as much for beef as they are for big red wines, so we recommend marinating a skirt steak in soy, garlic, aromatic herbs, and balsamic vinegar, then grilling it (when the weather allows) over hardwood charcoal. Serve it with a fresh, garlicky chimichurri.
“A very clean, fruity Cabernet with blackberry and blueberry character. Medium-bodied with creamy tannins. Fresh finish. Drink or hold.” 92 points, James Suckling, April 2021
