Variety: Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet)
Envínate (Wine Yourself) has turned into a unicorn winery, producing wines people talk and read about but never can find or buy. The gang of four friends behind these bottles met while studying enology in Alicante, Spain. After graduating, they formed a wine consulting business to find lost, old vineyards and indigenous grapes and start producing wines from these sites and grapes. The aim has been no chemicals, handwork, and indigenous yeast only. The end product has been incredible and the sommelier world has latched on. Now the wines are in high demand but very little is produced.
“Albahra” is Castilian for small sea, referring to the vineyard areas in Almansa This is the first single vineyard wine coming from Almansa, the small appellation in Castilla La Mancha. The vineyard sourced is high altitude with old vines, a surprising example of the finesse of the Garnacha Tintorera variety. The wine creates intrigue and exudes complexity.
