Argentina - Beyond Malbec
El Enemigo Cabernet Franc

Hot on the heals of our sell-out Argentine Tannat offer, here's another find I'm really impressed with. A sample just arrived from the winery and I couldn't wait to try it. This is a wine that ticks so many boxes. I'm a huge fan of varietal Cabernet Franc and anything that comes from the Catena family is guaranteed to be good. 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 have made a specialty of Cabernet Franc and this latest 2017 release has just received a Platinum Award in the Decanter World Wine Awards. It's superb value and certain to prove popular.

As soon as the bottle is opened, seductive aromas of French patisserie emanate. Intensely vibrant cassis, red cherry, strawberry & blueberry burst from the glass. The pristine palate is succulent and refreshing, with layers of summer pudding flavours unfolding. Firm, ripe tannins provide structure and definition for the fleshy ripe fruit and glycerin-laden texture. The luxuriantly long finish has a poignant saline streak throughout. This is irresistible now and promises a good 5 years or more of drinking, should you wish. An incredibly refined effort for such a modest price.

Lovely perfumed and complex nose displaying layers of black fruit, eucalyptus, mint, cedar and tobacco. Ripe and mouth-filling, with plenty of fruit and extract, juicy and attractive in the palate, quite lively and elegant
97 points Decanter

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.
