Enate Syrah-Shiraz Somontano 2007

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Enate, like music, paintings, literature and exceptional cuisine is an expression of the finest art. Quality not quantity is Enates trademark producing wines for those that appreciate the finest things in life. Indeed, Enates top winemaker Jesus Artajona expects nothing but the absolute best having previously achieved great heights with world renowned 1st class growth, Chateau Margaux. As Spains leading winery for quality control, Enate boasts ultra modern facilities in spectacular contemporary premises while maintaining the best of tradition, ensuring low yields and eco-friendly practices. Its high altitude vineyards in Somontano, covering 600 hectres of land, are a perfect microclimate for producing stunning wines from both international and native grape varieties. Vintage: 2006 Grapes: Syrah from the Cregenzan plot and Shiraz from the Alcanetos valley Vinification: The grapes are manually harvested then destemmed and crushed. The must is fermented at 26°C in small stainless steel tanks. The wine is racked into new French and American oak casks, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and is aged for 16 months. Taste: Dark red cherry colour. Red fruits and blue flowers aroma, with a hint of olives and vanilla. Voluptuous on the palate with structured, velvety tannins. A long and persistent length. Serve: Served between 16°C and 18°it shows all its fragrance and complexity. As the wine was not subjected to tartaric filtration, it may show a natural sediment. Decant the wine gently to leave the sediment behind without affecting the taste of the wine
