Founded in 1991, Enate de Viñedos y Crianzas del Alto Aragón began operating with only 25 hectares of vineyards, which grew steadily over the years until they became the 500 hectares currently owned by the company.

Located at an altitude around 600 metres above sea level in the heart of Somontano, the Enate vines are protected by the Pyrenees and enjoy temperature differences up to 15oC between daytime and nighttime, a key factor in allowing the grapes to ripen slowly and steadily.

In the 12,000 square-meter facility, state-of-the-art equipment is used to craft the Enate wines with great precision and attention to detail. The company has over 4,000 oak barrels, 70% French and 30% American.

The wines produced by Enate are precise, elegant and conceived along a modern style. The production is divided into 85% red wines, 10% white wines and 5% rosé wines.

Crianza red wine from Somontano. Blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 9 months in French and American oak barrels and for a minimum of 20 months in the bottle. Crianza. 9 Months in French and American oak barrels.

Each of the grape varieties was separately vinified. Destemmed and gently crushed, both wine musts were separately macerated and fermented in contact with the grape skins in stainless steel tanks.

After that, both underwent malolactic fermentation and were aged for 9 months. The Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in French oak barrels and the Tempranillo in American oak barrels.

Finally, Enate Crianza 2018 was blended and further aged for a minimum of 20 months in the bottle prior to its commercial release.

The bottle is dressed up with a characteristic pink label designed by the painter Víctor Mira.

It is advisable to decant this red wine from Somontano before drinking.

The red wine Enate Crianza is medium purple with a ruby rim.
