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 started producing wines from these sites and grapes. Their aim is to create wine using no chemicals, handwork, and indigenous yeast only. The end product has been incredible and the sommelier world has latched onto their creations with fervor. The wines are incredibly high in demand with very little produced each year.
This cuvee is made from multiple different red varieties indigenous to the Canary Islands. Planted at 75-300 meters elevation right on the atlantic coast, the parcels these grapes are grown on are very old with 15 different families helping Envinate with harvest each year. Viticulturally the area is very old fashioned with vines untrained, soils worked by hand, and no chemical additions. 30% whole cluster fermentation takes place is open plastic tubs and concrete tanks and is then aged in small tanks and used 225 and 500 liter barrels for around 8 months.
