K&L Notes

A collaboration between long-time Catena winemaker Alejandro Vigil and the youngest Catena daughter, Adrianna, Bodegas Aleanna has been receiving a massive amount of critical acclaim over the past several years for their extraordinary wines. The "El Enemigo" Chardonnay is a powerful wine, with fruit, structure, and acidity all in balance. Interestingly enough, a little bit of flor resides in the barrels where this wine ages.

    Two highly enthusiastic reviews here piqued my curiosity, and I must admit...the wine is good - really good. It's rich, structured and generous but has plenty of brightness and minerality. Finally...it has the flor factor! It reminds me of my early experiences with Chalone Chardonnay, which is a good thing! Must be something about limestone and decomposed granite (soil types that both Chalone and El Enemigo share..)

    This is textured and weighty but with freshness to the middle of dried pit fruits, almonds and citrus. The finish is long and leesy with a hint of clarified butter and a full, dry palate. Here is a substantial and rich white with interesting complexity and enough oomph to handle hearty food.
