(2006 Vintage) The grapes used for making Prado Enea, along with those for Torre Muga, are always the last ones to be brought into the winery. This late picking ensures ideal ripening. The grapes are then fermented naturally in 10,000-kilo oak vats with no temperature control or added yeasts. The maceration time can vary and may go on for up to twenty days. This wine is aged in 16,000-litre capacity oak vats for twelve months and then (minimum) thirty-six months in oak casks and (minimum) thirty-six months in the bottle. After cask-ageing the wine is gently fined using fresh egg whites.
Nose is big and structured, but controlled. Cherries and leather. Smooth, full, round quality with huge tannins. This wine evolves slowly, from tannins at first, then a bright burst of acid, back to tannins and earth, and then to subtle fruit that lingers forever.
Chocolate covered cherries on the nose. On the palate, lush fruit. Cherry, spice, tobacco, hint of sandalwood.
