2020 Benje Blanco
Envinate (which translates to "wine yourself") is really unique project of four passionate winemakers who met while studying winemaking in Alicante in 2005.
With a shared philosophy and passion for exploring old abandoned vineyards in Western Spain and the Canary Islands, they have taken over multiple sites in different parts of the country - always working by hand and using concrete and old oak barrels for fermentation with wild yeast. Benje describes an area above the clouds at over 1000m above sea level on the western side of the Tiede volcano on the island of Tenerife. This 100% Listan Blanco (a variety also known as Palomino) shows apple, quince, stone fruit and citrus flavours with minerality, texture and savoury elements. Truly individual wine from this fantastic Spanish producer
