Envínate (aka wine-yourself) is the brainchild of Laura Ramos, Jose Martínez, Roberto Santana and Alfonso Torrente, four friends who met while studying oenology at the University of Miguel Hernández in Alicante. Their work is currently focused in exploring the ancient, Atlantic-infused terruños of Ribeira Sacra and the Canary Islands. Their philosophy is simple: let each single parcel fully express itself by utilizing old-fashioned farming and wine-making methods. Right now there are four different projects under the Envínate umbrella: Lousas in Ribeira Sacra, Taganan in Tenerife, T. Amarela in Extremadura and Albahra in Almansa.
This wine is made from Garnacha Tintorera and Moravia Agria grapes grown at 800 metres altitude, and fermented with 40% whole bunches in large concrete tanks. Marked by ripe, earthy fruit, dusty tannins and fresh acidity, it’s an approachable and highly enjoyable wine. It’s also very versatile with food.
This is medium purple, fruit-driven, cassis and blackberry as well as violet flowers on the nose. Dry medium-bodied fine tannins, which are ripe and round. Hints of bitter-chocolate delicious and easy-drinking, lots of flavour at only 12.5% abv.
