Enate "Chardonnay" 2017

100% Chardonnay
A still white wine from the Somontano region of Spain.

Complex, rich, vibrant. Apple, peach, fennel, exotic fruits.

Tasting Notes

The 2017 Chardonnay from Enate would make a great aperitif wine but could also very well complement a meal.

The nose is quite complex with notes of apple, peach, fennel and exotic fruits on a discrete mineral background.

Full-bodied and buttery. Clean and fresh on the palate.

It leaves a syrupy note on the finish. Elegant, smooth and pleasant.

Green-skinned grape variety used in wine production

Chardonnay is a grape variety with a green skin that is used to make white wine. The grape variety originated in eastern France’s Burgundy wine region, but it is now grown all over the world, from England to New Zealand. Growing Chardonnay is seen as a rite of passage for new and emerging wine regions, as well as an easy entry into the international wine market.

Is a Spanish Denominación de Origen Protegida (DOP) for wine

Somontano is a Spanish Denominación de Origen Protegida (DOP) for wines that was developed in 1984 and is located in the same-named county in Huesca’s province. It is bordered on the north by the regions of Sobrarbe and Ribagorza, on the west by Hoya de Huesca, on the south by the Monegros, and on the east by the region of Litera. The town of Barbastro is the epicenter of wine production. As its Latin roots say, Somontano means “below the mountain,” which perfectly describes this geographical region that stretches from the Pyrenees foothills to the Ebro valley. The DOP encompasses 43 municipalities, the majority of which are located in the Somontano region, with a few others bordering Ribagorza and the Monegros. There are approximately 500 individual grape growers and over 4000 hectares of vines.
