50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot
An easy drinking wine with a cosmopolitan character. A full ruby colour with a complex blackcurrant, blackberry aroma with a touch of violet and hints of red pepper, vanilla and herbs. Smooth and round mouthfeel; the soft tannic cushion gives way to a flavoursome palate which releases pleasant honey-roast aromas. The well-balanced acidity will ensure improvement in the bottle over the next five years.
Its full fruity flavour makes it ideal accompaniment to hot and cold meats, cheeses and even fish in a rich sauce. Best served between 14-16 degrees.
14.5% ABV / 750ml / Contains Sulphites
ENATE has 450 hectares of vineyards, allowing them to control and guarantee the quality of their grapes and vines as far as possible. This high-quality vine-growing is based on four essential points:
Low production per hectare: ENATE’s yield per hectare is below the limits established by the Governing Council of the Somontano Designation of Origin. This allows them to ensure balanced vegetation on the vines for better quality grapes.
Maximum respect for the environment: They do not use herbicides or synthetic chemical products against pests or disease. Instead they carry out preventive treatments with natural products. The fertiliser for the soil is exclusively organic, with manure.
Precision vine-growing: they meticulously control various aspects related to the vineyards:
Preparation and (laser) planting of new vineyards
Monitoring the weather and the soil moisture
Use of geographical information systems and GPS, as well as satellite images since 2006.
Excellence in the grape harvest: thanks to intensive monitoring of the ripening of the grapes, the best possible dates and times for each kind of wine are chosen for the harvest. In this way, they ensure that the grapes are as healthy as possible, with a complete absence of vine shoots and leaves. They are transported with maximum care in stainless steel trailers and in a short time – always less than an hour – to prevent damaging the bunches and the grapes.
At Enate, quality and environmental friendliness are two basic pillars of their identity. To guarantee this commitment, they subject each stage of the creation process to the strictest controls, because excellence never comes about by chance.
