Notes from José Pastor Selections:

"Envínate (“wine yourself”) is the brainchild of Laura Ramos, Jose Martínez, Roberto Santana and Alfonso Torrente, four friends who met while studying winegrowing at the University of Miguel Hernández in Alicante. Their work, both in the vineyard and winery, is focused on exploring the ancient, Atlantic -infused terruños of Ribeira Sacra and the Canary Islands, as well as exceptional vineyard plots across the Iberian Peninsula. The Envínate philosophy is simple: let each parcel fully express itself in the finished wine by utilizing old -fashioned farming and winemaking methods.

Their tinto is sourced from several parcels of 70–120-year-old vines at 9001200m elevation farmed by Envínate and 15 local families. Viticulture here is highly traditional: vines grow untrained, the soils is worked by hand, and no chemicals are used. "

The grapes fermented by parcel with with native yeasts in a mixture of concrete vats and plastic tanks. All parcels completed spontaneous malolactic fermentation. After fermentation, the wine aged for eight months in 228-litre neutral French oak barrels (65%) and concrete tank (35%) without racking. Bottled without fining or filtering and with only a tiny addition of sulfur.
