El Enemigo is the joint venture between Adrianna Catena, daughter of Dr Nicolas Catena, and Alejandro Vigil, who also doubles as Catena’s chief winemaker. They specialise in Cabernet Franc and have won numerous plaudits for their single vineyard Gran Enemigo Cab Francs from their Gualtallary, Agrelo, Cepillo and Chacayas vineyards. Now we are pleased to offer their Enemigo Cab Franc 2017, sourced from their Gualtallary vineyards, and which has recently received 95 pts from Tim Atkin and 93 pts from the Wine Advocate (see below for the reviews).
"Made 'like a flan', according to Ale Vigil, this is a co-fermented blend of Cabernet Franc and 8% Malbec, with lots of whole bunches and aged in old wooden foudres. Zesty and fresh, with the low alcohol and focus that are a feature of El Enemigo style, it’s savoury and bright with salty minerality and graphite and green herb flavours." Wine Advocate 93 Points
"The expressive and elegant 2017 El Enemigo Cabernet Franc has some 8% Malbec in the blend. It's a subtle red with nuance and detail, very harmonious, aromatic, even floral within the spicy character of the variety. The palate is medium-bodied, the tannins are very fine and there's moderate alcohol and very good freshness and harmony. This matured in oak foudres for some 15 months. 25,000 bottles produced."
