Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For El Enemigo Chardonnay 2019

El Enemigo Chardonnay 2019 is a remarkable white wine that showcases Alejandro Vigil's mastery of Chardonnay winemaking. This impressive wine is a perfect balance of innovation and tradition. Alejandro Vigil pushed the boundaries by adding a little flor to the winemaking process, similar to Fino Sherry. This process imbues the wine with a unique toasty, spicy, and salty flavor profile that is both refreshing and briney, with some honeyed notes. The wine's bouquet is a testament to the artistry of the winemaker, with subtle hints of oak and vanilla. The finish is long and satisfying, leaving a pleasant aftertaste that lingers.

Crafted from handpicked Chardonnay grapes, the El Enemigo Chardonnay 2019 is a testament to the winemaking tradition of Argentina's Mendoza region. This wine is a perfect pairing for a variety of dishes, including seafood, grilled chicken, and creamy pastas. Its crisp acidity and balanced tannins make it a versatile wine that will please any palate. The bottle's elegant design reflects the wine's sophistication, making it an excellent gift for any wine lover.

Critic Ratings

Wine Spectator Review - Issue Nov 15, 2021 - Rated 90:
Rich and well-spiced, with plush dried apple, apricot and pear tart flavors. Minerally finish has lingering notes of dried mint and tarragon. Drink now through 2024. 1,400 cases made, 1,000 cases imported. — KM

Wine Enthusiast Review - Published 7/1/2022 - Rated 90:
Delicate notes of honeysuckle and chamomile flowers with pear and pineapple aromas are in the glass of this elegant Chardonnay from Gualtallary in the Uco Valley. The creamy palate is flavorful with concentrated citrus, tropical fruit and vanilla notes backed by nice acidity. It has a lingering finish with pleasant, sweet oaky flavors in the aftertaste.

James Suckling Review - Published April 22, 2021 - Rated 96:
Cooked apple, lemon curd and light vanilla on the nose, together with stone, mineral and some dried flowers. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and beautiful fruit. Hints of vanilla and pie crust in the aftertaste. Always great quality for the price. Drink or hold.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Published 31st Mar 2021 - Rated 93:
The textbook 2019 Chardonnay is elegant and subtle, seamless and integrated, with moderate alcohol and great freshness, finishing dry and very tasty. Vigil likes to have some flor in part of his wines, and it gives them a special complexity and tastiness. 2019 was a very healthy vintage, and the grapes achieved 13.5% alcohol while keeping very high acidity, which makes the palate vibrant and lively. It was produced with grapes from Gualtallary and that always adds extra freshness when picked at the right time. It matured in 500-liter oak barrels for nine months and there's always some flor in the élevage. 16,500 bottles were filled in December 2020. - Luis Gutiérrez
