El Enemigo Malbec 2016
On the nose this Malbec has floral scents of violets and lavender, along with the freshness of its natural acidity. The Petit Verdot gives aromas of ripe black berries, while the palate offers vanilla and toasted flavours. It is sweet, silky and big, with full, but well-balanced tannins.
About the winemakerEl Enemigo is a romantic winery at heart. The concept was born September 2009 as Alejandro Vigil and Adrianna Catena walked back from the Argentine Embassy in London, where Nicolas Catena had just received the Decanter Man of the Year Award. Adrianna, a historian, and Alejandro, a soils engineer, spoke of their shared love of philosophy, wine and history – so they decided to create wines together in reflection of this. Not that their respect for tradition means they stick within its limits, following the status quo has never been El Enemigo's bag. Alejandro holds the highest rating ever given to a pure Cabernet Franc wine by Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, awarded to El Gran Enemigo Cabernet Franc from Gualtallary, Mendoza.
