This one is finally back after a good long time. A definite favourite of ours and many of yours too. Let's find out more..
Enate was founded in 1991 with the aim to produce high-quality wine in the Somontano appellation. The winery has a strong link to contemporary art: the building itself is an architectural masterpiece, and the internal decorations. This commitment and love is reflected in the wines' labels, which are reproductions from contemporary artists' paintings. Enate is a modern winery open to visitors the whole year.
Somontano which means “at the foot of the mountains” is located in Aragon in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Here the mountains give protection from cold northen-influence and provide a gentle south-facing amphitheatre of suitable vineyard land between 350 and 650 m above sea level. Even if Aragon is not at the level of their prestigious neighbours, Somontano wines are among the most reliable and best value in Spain.
The Enate Barrica differs from his cousin 234 Enate, which has been fermented in barrels. This is a full and creamy wine with beautiful aromas and a long finish.

Intense golden colour, notes of tropical fruit and smoke provided by the barrel aging. The wine is dense and creamy on the palate with fresh acidity and a long finish.
