Listan Blanco. 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.
Producer Information: Envinate
Envinate are four friends who met while studying winemaking.
Based in separate parts of Spain they have common ideals - use traditional methods to let each parcel express itself.
Lousas by Alfonso Torrente in Ribeira Sacra champions the local Mencia grape.
Táganan by Roberto Santana in Tenerife makes the most of native grapes
T. Amarela in Extremadura and Albahra in Almansa are made by Laura Ramos and José Martínez.
Some of these wines are made in really small amounts - blink and you'll miss them.
Tenerife accounts for a good chunk of Envinate's production with Taganan, Benje and Migan wines.
