Red Wine Enate Merlot Merlot 2015
Availability: In stock
This Spanish red wine from Somontano was the first single varietal of the winery, made after the chief winemaker Jesús Artajona decided to launch a line of wines produced from international varieties.
Harvested at their optimal ripening point, the grapes were vinified in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation took place in new French oak barrels, where this red wine from Somontano was also aged for 13 months. Finally, it was aged for some months in the bottle before its commercial release.
Elegant and powerful, we suggest that you decant Enate Merlot Merlot 2015 to remove any potential sediment.
The label was designed by the prestigious Catalan artist Frederic Amat.
The red wine Enate Merlot Merlot has an intense, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a crimson rim and some violet tinges.
Focused and precise, this varietal Merlot from Somontano, with some intense aromas of ripe red fruit, a dash of black fruit, some remembrances of spices and balsam, clear herbal notions and a touch of dry fruit.
