Bodega Aleanna Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard 2011 750ML      
Sku: 66893

London, September 18, 2009 - Alejandro Vigil and Adrianna Catena walked back from the Argentine Embassy in London where Nicolas Catena had just received the Decanter Man of the Year Award among a group of dear friends from around the world. The Thames River was covered with mist as Adrianna began to tell Alejandro about the importance of the Thames Valley on royal power in Medieval England.

Adrianna is a historian finishing her Ph.D. in Medieval History at Oxford University; Alejandro, a soils engineer, has been chief winemaker at Catena Zapata for the last 13 years. They share a mutual fascination with the writers Dostoyevsky and Cortazar, a passion for the Hellenic Philosophers, a love for music and photography, and a deep, obsessive dedication to their young families - Adrianna's son Antonio and Alejandro's daughter Guiliana are exactly the same age.

On that walk, Alejandro and Adrianna decided to make a wine together, a wine that would represent their deep respect for history and tradition, and their complete irreverence towards the status quo.

Tasting notes
El Gran Enemigo SV Gualtallary shows a deep purple color with red highlights. Its aromas are intense and elegant. Cabernet Franc brings sweet spices, black pepper and light notes of eucalyptus and thyme. Malbec brings notes of ripe black fruits, blackberries and black cherries. The oak aging gives a touch of chocolate and vanilla to blend. The taste is complex, sweet impact with structured tannins, and a very long and persistent finish. This wine was made in honor of the old Pomerol style where Cabernet Franc was blended with the other Bordeaux varieties.

Rating
“The texture is very fine and the acidity creates asmall explosion in your taste buds. A very long aftertaste and almost citric flavors with a mineral, almost salty finish. If you want to understand what Gualtallary can do, find a bottle of this wine. At this quality level the price seems too good to be true.” Wine Advocate, 98 Points
