Made from an equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Enate Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot is a very well-known Spanish red wine produced in the DO Somontano.

All of the grapes come from estate-owned vineyards planted at an altitude of 600 metres above sea level. Harvested by hand, both varieties were separately vinified in stainless steel tanks, with an alcoholic fermentation which lasted 20 to 30 days, followed by malolactic fermentation.

After that, this red wine from Somontano was aged for 6 months in 225-litre French and American oak barrels.

Finally, Enate Cabernet-Sauvignon Merlot 2016 was blended and aged for a further 12 months in the cellar prior to its release.

Drink Enate red label produced by the Enate winery, from now until 2022.
