Crunchy and Aromatic Warming Red Wine
Envínate are making tremendously wholesome wine from around Spain. This, the Albahra 2019 is from Castilla La Mancha in central Spain made using organic techniques from indigenous regional varieties Moravia Agria and Garnacha Tintorera.
The partial whole bunch fermentation provides a crunchy, stemmy character whilst remaining super fresh (from 800m altitude) despite the moderate-warm climate. Chalk and clay soils mixed with fermentation in concrete eggs gives the wine a smooth and rounded texture. The fruit was super ripe red plum, blackcurrent with an underlay of spicy, earthy pepper. A refreshing, approachable and wonderful value BBQ wine.
