Enate Cabernet Tempranillo Somontano Crianza 2005

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Somontano has been at the cutting edge of the Spanish wine industry for the past 10 years and is recognised as where new world wine advances have combined with Spain's traditional values. The company at the forefront of this vitality is Enate. Since its formation in 1991 it now commands 27% of the region's export sales and is respected for its premium quality in 30 countries. The investment has been colossal. The company has 600 hectares of vineyards in production. The futuristic beautifully designed cellars and winemaking complex has the capacity to store 4.1 million litres in stainless steel, has 5,000 French oak barrels and space to mature over 4 million bottles. Winemaking is highly automated, with a computer that can communicate in 12 languages; but the human touch is under the careful control of talented international star Jésus Artajona. Success is obvious with every market under a strict stock allocation. Vintage: &nbs...

Somontano has been at the cutting edge of the Spanish wine industry for the past 10 years and is recognised as where new world wine advances have combined with Spain's traditional values. The company at the forefront of this vitality is Enate. The futuristic beautifully designed cellars and winemaking complex has the capacity to store 4.1 million litres in stainless steel, has 5,000 French oak barrels and space to mature over 4 million bottles. Winemaking is highly automated, with a computer that can communicate in 12 languages; but the human touch is under the careful control of talented international star Jésus Artajona. Vintage: 2005 Grapes: 70% Tempranillo & 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were manually harvested. Vinification: The grape varieties were fermented separately in stainless steel tanks at 28C with a maceration period of 10-15 days. After malolactic fermentation the wine remains in oak casks (Tempranillo in American oak and Cabernet Sauvignon in French oak) for 9 months. Serve: Decant the wine gently from the bottle. Serve at 16-18C with smoked meats, grilled or roast red meats, casseroles and cheese. Will age well in bottle for up to 8 years. Taste: Cherry red with an attractive intense and complex bouquet, together with rich smoky and spicy tones over a base of ripe cherry fruit. A full bodied wine with balanced tannins and a long and toasty finish.
