Awards, Reviews and other Notes

93 pts & #3 Argentine Chardonnay for 2016 Descorchados South American Wine Guide
Ripe white fruits mixed with spices and saline notes show he potential of this chardonnay. As dry as bad thoughts.
90 pts Vinous/Stephen Tanzer March 2016
(barrel-fermented, with no SO2 added except at the bottling; El Enemigo is a joint venture between the immensely talented Alejandro Vigil, the winemaker at Catena Zapata, and wine historian Adrianna Catena, the youngest daughter of Nicolas Catena): Straw-yellow. Ripe, oily nose conveys a sappy, salty richness and sweet oak tones. Displays a subtle tropical fruit ripeness along with some leesy complexity on the palate, then finishes surprisingly firm and minerally, with a note of nut skin. In a distinctly savory style. According to winemaker Vigil, by not using any SO2 he encourages the formation of flor in his Chardonnay barrels; it typically grows in about 80% of them. Vigil noted that this wine comes from deeper soils than the Catena Chardonnays. He does three different picks for this wine, with potential alcohol levels ranging from 11% to 15%, but even more passes through the vines for the top three Catena Chardonnays.
