 A very serious wine; the perfect representative of ENATE’s Merlot-Merlot line. It presents a broad, complex range of aromas harmoniously combining touches of red fruit, balsamic and spicy notes (eucalyptus, clove) together with characteristic aromas of dried apricots and hints of chocolate and toast provided by the barrel. Its palate is broad and fleshy, lining the mouth with sweet, impeccably manufactured tannins. In the mouth, the finish is very persistent, offering touches of Chinese ink and leather.

Enate and art – they almost rhyme which is, perhaps, no coincidence – come together at a lofty point: the desire to create. When it began in 1992, the winery decided that the pairing of winemaking and contemporary culture would be an essential feature of its character. It was a tricky challenge from a business point of view as well as from an artistic perspective, but it was an undisputed triumph and was copied by others. The concept was a winner: the excellence of an idea is obvious once someone – in this case Enate – has been brave enough to work it out. It was, in fact, a desire to create. In the same way as a winery is unthinkable without wine, Enate accepted art as the very essence of its identity. The two concepts begin together and mutually enrich one another. Human beings are, essentially, creators of one kind or another and we naturally love the pleasures of life. In 1992, Enate made a formal commitment to pairing the two concepts, contrasting the almost mathematical expertise of a winemaker with the unpredictability of artists inspired by winemaking. Today, Enate is both a winery and a museum. It is both a wine shop and an art gallery and its character has been formed in the excellence of both. Its barrels and walls sum up the great wines of Spain, inhabited by the genius of the great Spanish and international creators.
