White wine from old volcanic soil!
Táganan is the old local name for this rugged vineyard area, located on the northeastern side of Tenerife, where vines are planted on primary volcanic rock on cliffs just above the Atlantic. A truly unique and characterful wine, deliciously salty and smoky with refreshing acidity.
Envínate (translates as "wine yourself") is the brainchild of 4 friends, winemakers Roberto Santana, Alfonso Torrente, Laura Ramos, and José Martínez. They formed in 2005 while studying enology in Alicante. Upon graduation, they formed a winemaking consultancy, which evolved into Envínate, a project that focuses on producing pure and expressive wines.
This wine is a blend of the many different native white varieties planted more than 100 years ago, between 75 and 300 metres of altitude on volcanic soils. Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. Once they arrive at the winery, each plot ferments separately, with native yeasts, in 500-litre oak barrels. Only some of the varieties are macerated. 60% of the wine is aged for 8 months in oak barrels. The remaining 40% ages in stainless steel deposits with its fine lees. It is bottled with very little SO2, without clarifying or filtering.
