Envinate, which translates as “wine yourself,” is the project of four passionate young winemakers: Roberto Santana, Jose Martinez, Laura Ramos and Alfonso Torrente. The four met while studying oenology in Alicante in 2005 and formed a collective based on a shared philosophy of wine and a desire to explore the ancient, Atlantic influenced terroirs of western Spain.

In 2008, the group bought their first vineyard in Ribera Sacra, then took control of vineyards on the north of Tenerife and followed by a single patch of Tinta Amarela in Extremadura. Finally, in 2012, they began working a site in Almansa,  planted with Garnacha Tintorera. In each place, the team care for old abandoned vineyards and move frequently around the country.

Tasting Note:
Fruit for this ‘village’ (aldea, in Gallego) wine comes from multiple old vine plots across Ribeira Sacra. The blend is dominated by Mencia and was vinified with around 40% whole clusters, with some good old foot treading and no new oak. 
The palate has great intensity, showing a pure mix of pomegranate, wild cranberries, sour cherries and raspberries, layered with blood orange, basil and fresh herbs and hints of cocoa nip and it's characteristic white pepper.
The 2019 shows excellent balance with lovely freshness and will taste it's best if you drink it slightly below room temperature.

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with High acidity and Medium tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
