Enate Chardonnay 234 is an intensely aromatic wine, with nuances of apple, peach, wild fennel and exotic fruits, supported by a subtle minerality. On the palate the wine is fresh and complex, with mouth-filling fruit and a long, uplifting and clean finish.
The hand-picked bunches are destemmed. The grapes are lightly crushed and soaked on the skins for 5 hours. After pneumatic pressing, a natural settling follows at 10°C. The young, clean must is then fermented in stainless steel tanks at 15°C. Before bottling, the young wine undergoes a cold stabilization treatment at -5°C to promote aromatic purity.
For this chardonnay '234', Enate uses the grapes from only one vineyard, known at the register as 'n° 234', hence the name of this wine. The soil consists of a mixture of sand and loam, poor and permeable to water. The vineyard is located at 550-600 meters above sea level, protected by the Pyrenees. The humidity is low, partly due to the drying effect of gentle winds. Due to the altitude, the difference in temperature between day and night is very large, 35 ° C during the day, 15 ° C at night. This gives the grapes extra complexity, aromatic power and taste.
Great as a chic aperitif or cooling "chill-out" lounge wine. Ideal accompaniment of sea fish in refined white wine and butter sauces, shellfish and crustaceans, pasta dishes with a delicate butter sauce, white meat and also soft, creamy cheeses.
