Envinate Ribeira del Guadiana Tinto 'T Amarela - Parcela Valdemedel' 2017
Envinate was founded by four friends with shared passion for Atlantic-influenced wine regions. ‘Parcela Valdemedel’ comes from north-facing, high-elevation vines rooted in limestone soils. Fruit is foot-trodden and ferments naturally in oak barrels, then ages for 11 months. Black fruit, sage, and wet stones dominate the palate. Vivacious and delicious!
One of the 'big three' European wine giants along with France and Italy, but perhaps the one with the most untapped potential, with many ascendant regions and producers just now finding an audience.
