Characteristics of Enate Reserva
Enate Reserva is a red wine made by the Enate winery in Salas Altas (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 label reproduces the work of a well-known artist, created deliberately for the winery.
Enate Reserva is a wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in our own vineyards.
The grapes are harvested by hand and put into boxes, upon arrival to the winery they are stemmed and lightly crushed. The grapes are then fermented in stainless steel tanks whose temperature is controlled at 28°C. After the fermentation and délestage process the wine is poured into French oak barrels where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and aged for one year. Before being bottled, its rests for at least 24 months in the bottle.
Enate Reserva is a structured, balanced and round wine. To further elaborate this wine, the winery adopts a tradition from La Rioja, which adds elegance to the wood and rests it before releasing the wine on the market.
