Vina Cobos is Paul Hobbs’ winery in Mendoza. He is better known (at least for the moment) to connoisseurs and collectors for his namesake winery in Napa, California which has been awarded many accolades (including maximum score 100 points from the world’s most influential critic Robert Parker). He is also well known for being winemaker at America’s most famous estate the Rothschild/Mondavi project Opus One. This Chardonnay was whole cluster pressed and fermented using natural yeasts. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel again using native yeasts. Only part of the wine is barrel aged while the remainder of the wine was aged in steel tanks. Tasting Note: 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. Food Matching: Certainly big enough for strong flavours and would be perfect with seared or roast shellfish like lobster and scallops or simply roast chicken.
