Variety: Listan Blanco
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.
Hailing from the Canary Islands, this Listan Blanco comes from the western part of the island of Tenerife. On this particular island is the Teide volcano; the untrained old vines for Benje are located here. Just a quarter of the fruit is vinified on the skins. The wine is raised in a combination of concrete and old French barriques.
