Product Description

Arguably the most important winery in Somontano, Enate pioneered the production of Chardonnay wines in that northern Spanish region.

This single varietal Spanish white wine was meticulously crafted.

Harvested by hand, the grapes were destemmed and gently pressed. Then Enate Chardonnay Fermentado en Barrica underwent alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels.

After that, this wine of the Enate winery was aged on its lees for 7 months, with two monthly stirrings of the lees.

Clarified and cold-stabilized, Enate Chardonnay Fermentado en Barrica 2017 was finally aged for a further 6 months in the bottle before its commercial release.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The white wine Enate Chardonnay Fermentado en Barrica has an intense yellow colour with some golden and steely tinges.


This intense and expressive Chardonnay conveys subtle remembrances of toast and smoke, slowly evolving into aromas of ripe white fruit, citrus, and white flowers. On the background of white wine from Somontano, we intuit some hints of honey, butter, lees and dry fruit.


Creamy and palate-coating, this Chardonnay fermented in oak has a substantial body counterbalanced by a lively, refreshing acidity. Notes of white and tropical fruit, pastry and smoke. Enate Chardonnay barrica has a long, toasted finish.

Our personal opinion

The wine Enate Chardonnay Fermentado en Barrica 2017 is thoroughly enjoyable. Excellent integration of fruit and oak.
