The Enate Crianza is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo. The classic blend of grapes, but enates style - And how beautifully the two go together in a glass! So the grapes are taken with the utmost care - hand-picked and destemmed. The hand-picked bunches are destemmed. The perfectly ripe grapes are pressed and fermented separately (tempranillo <> cabernet) in stainless steel tanks at 28°C. The soaking takes 10-15 days. The young wine undergoes complete malolactic fermentation and 9 months of aging in oak barriques, French (for the cabernet sauvignon) and American (for the tempranillo). The wine is traditionally clarified with albumin (egg whites) and lightly filtered. It is bottled without cold stabilization treatment, which allows a small depot in the bottle. A sign of quality.

The Enate Tempranillo - Cabernet Sauvignon Crianza has a deep cherry red color in the glass. Intense and complex nose, rich in smoked notes and spices, on a background of ripe fruit. In the mouth the wine is full of structure, well balanced thanks to the ripe tannins and the fresh acid. Long finale with elegant wood notes. The Enate wines are famous all over the world and the labels are made by Spain's best visual artists. A lot of wine for the money.

Vineyard for 2019 Enate Tempranillo - Cabernet Sauvignon Crianza

Enate is a modern Bodega from Somontano in northern Spain. Enate is located in the village of Salas Bajas, in Somontano, which is located in the northeast of Spain, a good distance from the coast. The leafy landscape can be quite rough, which fully confirms the name Somontano - under the mountains. The local wine growers have had to lobby for a long time to obtain their DO status, but they did manage in the end. Since then, Somontano has been a big name in Spanish wine growing. So enate wines come from a good family. The area where the grape for the Enate wine is grown is characterized by above average rainfall and an abundance of rivers and streams. All that water is good for the soil, which consists largely of clay and sandstone. The nearby Pyrenees give the weather a certain capriciousness. At night it is surprisingly cold, while the sun can scorch in the afternoon. Those 2 extremes give the grapes used for the Enate wine a good balance of acids and sugars.

Despite the relatively young age of this bodega, founded in 1991, it is already one of the most prestigious wineries in Spain. In addition to the quality of the wines, Enate stands out for its sampling. Spanjes' best contemporary visual artists make the labels. ENATE's mission is to make high-quality and premium wines from the best grapes of Somontano, with respect for the ancient local traditions and using the latest technology.

This company with 500 ha of vineyards has a clear philosophy: the Nozaleda family wants to make the best wines from the Denominación Somontano. Oenologist Jesús Artajona translates this philosophy into wine. Bodega Enate concentrates on the international grape varieties Merlot, Cabernet and Chardonnay and the Spanish royal grape Tempranillo. The company makes 85% red wine, 10% white wine and 5% rosé. The vineyards are located at the foot of the Pyrenees at an altitude of 550-600 m above sea level. The climate is Atlantic. This means high temperatures during the day (34-35 ° C) and strong cooling at night (17-18 ° C), ideal for the growth of the grapes.

The establishment of the winery also went its own way: the main building is multifunctional and was designed with the aim of uniting spectacular architecture with the wine world. This gives Enate a lot of attention from mountain hikers and curious wine lovers. The objective of bringing art and wine together is reflected in the labels of the bottles. It shows works of art from the Spanish art avant-garde (Antonio Saura, Eduardo Chillida, Antoni Tàpies and many others). The collection of own labels is exhibited in the winery's own gallery.
