Meaning "small sea", the Albahra from cult producer Envinate is a remarkably pure and bright wine bursting with fresh red fruits and incredible minerality. A blend of Garnacha Tintorera and the rare Moravia Agria, this is the perfect partner for a lunch of charcuterie and grilled meats
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 work is currently focused on exploring the ancient, Atlantic-infused terruños of Ribeira Sacra, Canary Islands, Extremadura and Almansa. Their philosophy is simple: let each parcel fully express itself through old-fashioned farming and wine-making methods.
Right now there are four different projects under the Envínate umbrella: Lousas by Alfonso Torrente in Ribeira Sacra, Táganan by Roberto Santana in Tenerife, T. Amarela in Extremadura and Albahra in Almansa both by Laura Ramos and José Martínez. These are some of The Sourcing Table's most unique and special wines, and some are only made in tiny quantities, so grab them while you can!
