A beautifully balanced, zesty and tasty Chardonnay from El Enemigo. The 2018 Chardonnay is another excellent vintage with white florals, ripe apple, fresh pear, white peach and nectarine creamy and long on the finish. Outstanding. Drink or hold.

Reviews and Ratings

Trent Mayers rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

An excellent wine from the Mendoza region. Its pale lemon colour does not foreshadow the wonderfully full bodied, Burgundian character. A white with mouth filling lemon curd, yellow apple, vanilla, cream, butterscotch, burnt sugar, toast, and smoke finishing with pineapple and wet stone. If you are serving seafood like crab or shrimp, roast chicken, or pasta in a cream sauce, this wine will make your dinner spectacular.
4 stars out of 5
Jay Denney rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A delicious and well rounded Chard. Toasted oak awakens the nose and palate, giving way to baked apple and vanilla poached pear. Creamy mouthfeel that lingers pleasantly.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
