Characteristics of Enate Crianza
Enate Crianza is a red wine from the D.O Somotano produced by Bodegas Enate. The winery was established in 1991 and has now become one of the leading wineries on the Spanish winemaking scene.
The climate is continental: very cold winters and hot summers.
Enate Crianza is a blend of Tempranillo (70%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (30%). The grapes originate from vineyards located in Salas Altas, Salas Bajas Cregenzán and Barbastro. These are located at 600 meters above sea level in chalky and poor soils.
After the harvest, Enate Crianza is destemmed where each variety is vinified separately in stainless steel vats. The grapes for Enate Crianza undergo a malolactic fermentation
The two varieties for Enate Crianza are aged separately for 9 months: la Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in French oak and the Tempranillo, in American oak. After the blend, the wine is bottled and rests for another 18 months.
