Characteristics of Enate Gewürztraminer
Enate Gewürztraminer is a white wine made by the Enate winery in Halls (Huesca). D.O. Somontano
Enate is a winery founded in 1991 that has quickly become a reference in the Spanish wine industry. Defining itself as a wine cellar of our time, where a passion for tradition coexists with today's modern techniques, Enate offers a wide range of wines that range from typical crianza and reservas to monovarietal reds and whites.
The winery’s vineyard of approximately 500 hectares is distributed throughout the municipalities of Salas Altas, Salas Bajas, Cregenzán and Basbastro. Located at an altitude of approximately 600 metres on very fertile limestone terrain. The climate in this area is continental, the temperatures are very cold in winter and hot in the summers.
Since its beginnings Enate has always enjoyed marrying wine with art, so much so that in 1992 it began to collect national and international contemporary art. Each wine bottle reproduces on its label the work of a well-known artist, created deliberately for the winery.
Enate Gewürztraminer is a wine made from Gewürztraminer grapes grown in our own vineyards.
The grapes are harvested by hand and put into boxes, upon arrival to the winery they are lightly crushed and placed in a pneumatic press for five hours while they undergo pellicular maceration The solid waste is removed by natural decantation at 8°C and the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts and temperature controlled at 15°C. Before the wine is bottled it is clarified, stabilised and filtered.
Enate Gewürztraminer is an aromatic, fresh and elegant wine. A varietal wine, its typical notes of roses stand out, which serves as evidence of this central European grape's perfect adaptation to Somontano.
