We were only able to get a few cases of this wine originally and were hoping more could be found. Unfortunately, it appears we are only going to be able to offer 25 bottles of this spectacular wine to our clients. It is better to have some then none I guess so here goes. El Enemigo is quickly making a name for itself as one of the finest wineries in Mendoza Argentina. Robert Parker just awarded them the first 100 point score for a wine from Argentina for their 2013 Cabernet Franc that we recently promoted.
Once I saw the scores I asked to taste through the entire lineup of wines, and I was very impressed! So much so that we are going to host a tasting later this year to feature all the wines produced by this incredible winery. Until then, enjoy the 2016 Chardonnay while it lasts!
Don’t delay, buy yours now before it sells out!!

With an even darker, more intense golden color but fresher aromas and flavors compared to the 2015 vintage, the 2016 El Enemigo Chardonnay has more noticeable notes of curry and nuts, with higher acidity, which gives it somewhat of a Jura character. It has 13.5% alcohol and 7.4 grams of acidity (in tartaric), so, very healthy natural parameters. It had a longer élevage sous voile, up to 13 months, so that probably explains why the yeasty and spicy character is more marked here than in the 2015. Winemaker Alejandro Vigil likes it like this, but he doesn’t want more of the flor character, as it’s not supposed to be a flor wine. Superb! It will be very interesting to see how this wine ages in bottle. 14,000 bottles were filled in September 2017.
