93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Still very young but already quite expressive and with a vibrant palate, the 2021 Semillon has a very low pH, reflecting the great freshness the wine achieved in this cooler vintage. It comes from an 80-year-old vineyard at 930 meters in altitude in Agrelo where the soils are rich in clay. It fermented and matured in 250-liter oak barrels, 20% of which developed a veil of flor yeast that give it a faint spicy twang. It has a seamless palate with a chalky and dry texture and finish, tasty and expressive. It should develop nicely in bottle. 5,250 bottles produced.

Winemaker Notes

This vintage has been characterized by perfectly healthy grapes leading to wines of great concentration and color, and of splendid acidity. 

Winery Notes

El Enemigo translates as the enemy. Nodding to the fact that at the end of any journey, most remember only one battle — the one fought within (the original enemy). This is the battle that defines us. The wines of El Enemigo are a tribute to those internal battles that make us who we are, brought to fruition by a winemaker, Alejandro Vigil, and a historian, Adrianna Catena who share a love of wine and reach back in time to capture the era when European immigrants first settled in Argentina. These settlers sought to make wines as fine, and finer, than those of their old homeland. By 1936, Malbec and Petit Verdot were the most widely planted fine varietals in Argentina, their blend considered the ultimate in refinement and aging potentia.
