Felino Vina Cobos 2011 Chardonnay
If you solely paid attention to the nose of this wine, you'd be surprised to find out that only 20% of the grapes were fermented in barrel. The nose has aromas of apple, oak, vanilla, movie popcorn, spice and fresh pear. Creamy and fairly spicy on the palate, the silky texture goes well with the juicy fruit and mild gingerbread spice notes. Pair with roast chicken, richer seafood, crab or creamier cheeses.
