One of the winery’s flagship wines. It boasts a magnificent balance between fruit and oak brought about by the careful development of the wine on its lees balanced with its barrel-aging. A regular prize-winner amongst the very best of Spanish wines.
Exuberant and complex aromas reveal a tantalizing blend of varietal characteristics such as hazelnut and toasted bread; tropical fruits, including pineapple and grapefruit, and hints of toasted oak from the barrel-aging. On the palate it is mouth-filling and creamy and develops beautifully with a fresh acidity that finishes in an extraordinarily long finish, during which nuances of toastiness reappear.
Served at between 10-12 ºC, Enate barrel-fermented Chardonnay is ideal with oily fish, white meat, smoked foods and strong cheese.

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.
