Notes from the Winemaker:
Pale yellow with green tones. In the nose we find notes of white peach, green apple, white flowers and honeysuckle. On the palate, it has great freshness, balance and persistent finish.

Vineyards in Valle de Uco and Luján de Cuyo. Planted at high altitude of around 3,300 feet (1,000 meters). Semi-desert climate.

Ratings & Reviews
92 Points - James Suckling (2017 Vintage):
"Aromas of cooked apple, mango and hints of pear with some toasted oak. Pie crust, too. Full body, tight and linear with bright acidity and a juicy and tangy finish. Creamy texture. Drink now. Screw cap." - (April 5, 2018)

89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2017 Vintage):
"The 2017 Felino Chardonnay was only partially oaked (less than in the past), and it's also 100% without malolactic this year but was kept with the lees to have more volume on the palate. The palate has very good freshness, and new winemaker Andrés Vignoni told me he likes wines with acidity. This represents a big change. This is clean, serious and sharp, with good freshness and minerality and with very little influence from the oak. 130,000 bottles produced." - Luis Gutiérrez (29th Jun 2018)

89 Points - Wine Spectator (2017 Vintage):
"Plush and richly spiced, with ripe pear and baked apple flavors that feature a creamy texture. Tropical accents show on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 7,100 cases made." — KM (Jun 15, 2018)

Antonio Galloni's Vinous (2017 Vintage):
"(14.6% alcohol; 95% from Uco Valley and 5% from the vineyard around the winery in Perdriel; no malolactic fermentation; just 7% new oak, the rest in stainless steel): Bright light yellow. Lively aromas of yellow peach and flowers with a touch of leesy complexity (winemaker Andrés Vignoni did not add sulfides until May, stirring the lees every 10 to 15 days "to gain creaminess while keeping acidity," and bottling the wine in December). Good peach intensity complicated by salty minerality and firmed by calcaire. Nothing sweet or sloppy about this excellent entry-level Chardonnay. Finishes firm and persistent, with lingering minerality." - Stephen Tanzer (Jul 2018)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2017 Vintage):
"Flowery peach, dust and oak aromas lead to a full round palate. Salty apple and woody flavors are plump and common to New World Chardonnay. Wood resin and spice flavors combine with leftover apple notes on the finish of this popular-style wine." - Michael Schachner (9/1/2018)
