"The 2010 Felino Chardonnay was native yeast fermented with the wine going through full malolactic fermentation. It offers up a lovely bouquet of melon, spiced apple, and floral notes setting the stage for a smooth-textured, flavorful, well-balanced wine that will provide enjoyment for another 3-4 years. It is an outstanding value.

Vina Cobos is a partnership between Paul Hobbs, Andrea Marchiori, and Luis Barraud. The new releases are further confirmation that Vina Cobos is one of Argentina’s great producers. The Felino label has for a number of years been synonymous with value." (WA)

"(20% fermented in barrel, the rest in stainless steel): Bright yellow with a green tinge. Aromas of peach, lime, talc, vanilla and spices complicated by a leesy nuance. Juicy, bright and spicy, with a sake-like fatness of texture to the peach, apricot and orange fruit flavors. Just enough oak to add nuance without overshadowing the wine's varietal character. An enticing chardonnay midweight with shape and firmness. Finishes spicy and persistent." (IWC)
