This is really amazing with an exotic dried fruit character of pineapple and mangoes. Full body, rich and fruity with cream, pie-crust and caramel character. Crazy Chardonnay with a little Jura style and some flor undertones. It really does have flor in the barrel when ageing. Love. Get it.

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.

Delicious but pricey

"El enemigo de enemigo es mi amigo? Or, we have seen el enemigo and he/she/they is us? This wine is delightful especially after drinking a lot of California Chardonnays. It’s a refreshing change, but a little priced high. On the other hand it comes all the way from Argentina. Tango!"
