Palo Blanco, Envinate 2021
Envínate (aka wine-yourself) is the brainchild of Laura Ramos, Jose Martínez, Roberto Santana and Alfonso Torrente, four friends who met while studying oenology at the University of Miguel Hernández in Alicante. They focus on exploring the ancient, Atlantic-influenced terruños of Ribeira Sacra, The Canary Islands and Almansa. Their philosophy is simple: let each parcel fully express itself through traditional farming and wine-making methods. Right now there are four different projects under the Envínate umbrella: Lousas overseen by Alfonso Torrente in Ribeira Sacra, Táganan and Benje by Roberto Santana in Tenerife, and Albahra in Almansa by Laura Ramos and José Martínez. These are some of Indigo’s most unique and special wines, and some are only made in tiny quantities, so grab them while you can!
Fruit comes from ungrafted 100 years old vines trained in the traditional cordón trenzado method. From the Palo Blanco quarter in a village called Los Realejos that
specializes in Listan Blanco, at 600 metres altitude on black sand and basalt
This is what Roberto refers to as a ‘vertical wine’. Linear, sharply mineral, tart green fruit with a fine citrus core and wonderfully textured palate. The concentration from old vines gives it a long finish, with a lingering saline and wet stone character.
