2021 Envinate Taganan "Parcela Margalagua", Canary Islands, Spain

A fresh and light bodied wine with a touch of spice, umami, and floral notes. Made from an extremely small single parcel of grapes named Margalagua, which means "Mother of The Water."



A blend of Listàn Negro, Vijariego, Malvasia Negra, Baboso, Negramoll from untrained vines ranging in age from 100-300 years old. This single parcel has distinctive red basalt among the sandy volcanic soil that is iron-rich and gives the wine a unique character not found in other wines from the Taganan area. Fermented 100% whole cluster in open top French oak barrels, followed by about a year of aging in neutral French oak.


Envínate (translates as "wine yourself") is the brainchild of 4 friends, winemakers Roberto Santana, Alfonso Torrente, Laura Ramos, and José Martínez. This gang of 4 formed back in 2005 while studying enology at the University of Miguel Hernandez in Alicante. Upon graduation, they formed a winemaking consultancy, which evolved into Envínate, a project that focuses on exploring distinctive parcels mainly in the Atlantic-inflected regions of Ribeira Sacra and the Canary Islands. Their collective aim is to make profoundly pure and authentic wines that express the terruño of each parcel in a clear and concise manner. To this end, no chemicals are used in any of the Envínate vineyards, all parcels are picked by hand, the grapes are foot-trodden, and the wines are fermented exclusively with wild yeasts, with a varying proportion of whole grape clusters included. For aging, the wines are raised in old barrels and concrete, and sulfur is only added at bottling, if needed. The results are some of the most exciting and honest wines being produced in Spain today.
