Tapas – Enate
An expressive, versatile wine with broad gastronomic potential, full of refreshing youth.
Rich in subtle touches, with the presence of berries (blackberries, cherries) together with notes of strawberry caramel and liquorice. Flavourful tannins blend with fresh acidity to give it a soft, rounded feel. A creamy, lactic finish.
Grape Varieties: Mainly Tempranillo, from our Alcanetos vineyard, with small percentages of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Vinification: The grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed and the must was then fermented at 24 ºC in stainless steel tanks. Once malolactic fermentation was complete the wine was clarified and stabilised preserving its youthful character to the full.
Tasting Note: Nuances of strawberry sweets and liquorish mingle playfully with red berries and cherries. The fusion of flavoursome tannins and fresh acidity brings about a smooth and well-rounded texture, which in turns leads to a creamy finish on the palate.
Service: Due to the wine’s youthful character, it is best to serve it lightly chilled, around 14 ºC. It is the perfect accompaniment to Spanish tapas such as cod croquettes, black pudding and black rice without forgetting cold fish dishes and pasta.
