Tasting Notes

The El Enemigo Malbec is rich and concentrated with aromas of black fruit and cherries. The palate is full, spicy, fruity and floral. The finish is long and elegant.

Method

Malbec grapes are complimented by about 5% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.  The grapes grow at high elevation in calcareous rocky soils.  Wild yeast fermentation for 20 days at a maximum temperature of 29º C with 30 days of maceration.  El Enemigo Malbec is fermented in both 225 liter barrels and old cement containers like those used a long time ago in Mendoza. The wine then ages in foudre.
