Racy and very saline white from the volcanic vineyards of Tenerife. Lovely savoury character, great with food.
Like the Taganan parcels, the Benje wines are also from small plots on the volcanic slopes of Tenerife. Planted at even higher altitudes, this expression of Listan Blanco has racy acidity and a zippy olive brine palate. A fascinating volcanic white.

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. Their philosophy is simple: let each single parcel fully express itself through old-fashioned farming and wine-making methods.
