Product Description
Details

Made from a blend of 70% Tempranillo and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, Enate Crianza is a Spanish red wine produced in the DO Somontano. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 550 metres above sea level.

Each of the grape varieties was separately vinified. Destemmed and gently crushed, both wine musts were macerated and fermented in contact with the grape skins in stainless steel tanks.

Then Enate Tempranillo-Cabernet Sauvignon, produced by the Enate winery, underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged for 9 months.

The Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in French oak barrels and the Tempranillo in American oak barrels.

After that, Enate Crianza 2016 was blended and further aged for 18 months in the bottle prior to its commercial release.

Appearance

The red wine Enate Crianza has a clean, bright, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a ruby rim.

Nose

This red wine from Somontano is intense. Lively notes of red fruit, spices and some smokey notions. Dim herbal undertones, alongside remembrances of liquorice, coffee and tobacco.

Palate

Dense and meaty, this blend of Tempranillo & Cabernet Sauvignon by the Enate winery has bold tannins, a rock-solid structure and a well-balanced acidity. Black fruit, green bell peppers, sesame seeds, dry earth and graphite. Long, spicy finish.

Our personal opinion

A great all-rounder, Enate Crianza 2016 will please all kinds of drinkers.
