2017 Felino Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina


Since visiting Mendoza for the first time in 1989, Paul Hobbs has been making fine wine from this superb high-altitude terrain. In 1998 he founded Vina Cobos, and since then has been making some of Argentina's greatest wines - Paul was the first to convince America of Malbec's potential from South America - you can't get better than that!

For the Felino wines, Cobo's looks for freshness and fruity expression. Made from grapes sourced from different regions in Mendoza,they represent the entrance to the superb wines from this estate. We first came across them about six-seven years ago, and every year they have come back better than before.

Just recently, Paul has handed winemaking duties for Felino over to Andrés Vignoni, who has concentrated on envisaging a more European style: fresher fruit, less oaking. The results are delicious: a nose of fresh black fruits and prunes. The concentrated palette shows the real balance and superb length that Felino Malbec has become famous for.
