Envínate ‘Benje’ Tinto, Ycoden-Daute-Isora, Spain 2022

Envínate means 'Wine Yourself'. Envínate is the brainchild of four friends fresh out of enology school in 2005. Roberto Santana, Alfonso Torrente, Laura Ramos, and José Martínez were in search of old vines in obscure places throughout Spain. Preservation and tradition are of utmost importance to this gang of four. They work with indigenous Spanish grape varieties such as Mencía, Brancellao, Listán Negro & Listán Blanco (Palomino). They never use any chemicals. Grapes are foot trodden, wild yeasts are used for fermentation, and used barrel or cement for elevage to preserve the fruit's integrity from vine to bottle. 

Benje Tinto is sourced from 1,000 meters elevation, old-vine, pie franco (un-grafted) parcels of Listan Prieto with a bit of Tintilla, all of them located in Santiago del Teide. Dark fruited with savory red fruit, peppercorn & purple flowers with textured tannin.  Think Mt. Etna.

We strongly recommend aging these wines for 3-4 years. Please see our blog on a recent tasting of Envínate current and library wines.
