Táganan Tinto 2019
A Wine That
takes everybody by surprise; a guaranteed 'jump for joy' moment will be had with this bottle and it's the best wine to bring to a dinner party as a result. Think raspberries and bramble fruit rolled in a bowl of fresh soil and sprinkled with white pepper, and dangerously smashable.

Where and How?
This comes from the northeastern side of Tenerife, from an area known locally as Táganan. It's a blend of the ancestral varieties found here, and farmed organically by the Envínate quadrant.
Each parcel is fermented naturally on its own, with circa 30% whole bunches to add some floral characteristics. The wine ages in old oak barrels (228L and 500L) for eight months, and is bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The Winemaker: Envínate
Going to school and university is about a lot more than education; they give birth to friendships and business ideas. In the case of Envínate, it was at the University of Miguel Hernández in Alicante that Laura Ramos, José Martínez, Roberto Santana and Alfonso Torrente met while studying oenology. This quartet of bright minds did not have family-owned wineries behind them, but they did have a joint love for organic viticulture and low intervention winemaking.
In the Beaujolais region, there is a group of winemakers nicknamed the Gang of Four who revived organic viticulture and quality winemaking in the region in the 80s. Well, this is the Spanish Gang of Four. Thanks to them and to Suertes del Marques, they have put Tenerife – a island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, across from Morocco – on the map of fine wine.
