Envínate are part of the new breed of Spanish winemakers making waves internationally. It’s not just hype, either. These are exciting expressions breathing fresh energy into old and unusual vines. Enter the Envínate T. Amarela Trincadeira.
It’s organic, of course (that’s just the Envínate way), and it comes from 15-year-old vines grown in the D.O. of Ribera del Guadiana. The grapes are destemmed, then fermented with wild yeasts and, naturally, subject to foot-treading. The juice then spends eight months in used French oak. Hot days, cold nights, and Mediterranean breezes make for rich, ripe juiciness, and a just-right acidity for balance.
