This Spanish white wine is made from grapes over 35 years of age coming from a single plot, the 234 one. They were handpicked, destemmed, gently crushed and kept in contact with their skins for 5 hours.
Finally, Enate Chardonnay 234 2018 was fermented in stainless steel tanks under strict temperature control and using only selected yeasts.
Finally, this young white wine from Somontano was clarified and stabilized before its bottling.
The label was designed by the artist Pepe Cerdá.
The white wine Enate 234 Chardonnay has a pale yellow colour with grey and green tinges.
Intensity combined with a true varietal character. This white wine by Enate smells of green apples, ripe peaches, pineapples, herbal nuances and mineral undertones. Quite rich.
On the palate, this single estate Chardonnay from Somontano is pleasant and fresh. Again, peaches and pineapples, but also some dry notes -hazelnuts and almonds- and a good backbone of acidity. Medium-long finish.
