Reviews 92 points John Gilman "The 2019 Taganan Blanco from Envinate is made from a blend of many of the indigenous white grape varieties on the island, all hailing from old, untrained vines that grow along the ground and by the cliffs that overlook the Atlantic Ocean in this part of Tenerife. The 2019 vintage has turned out beautifully for this wine, offering up a deep and complex bouquet of tart orange, pink grapefruit, salty minerality, lemongrass, raw almond and a topnote of citrus peel. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, complex and minerally, with a lovely core of fruit, excellent acids and grip, fine focus and a long, beautifully balanced and energetic finish. First class juice. (JG)"

Also From Envinate
Envinate ("wine yourself") is four friends paving the way for winemaking in the Canary Islands and Galicia. These pioneers make some of the most singular wines in Spain’s most extreme and ancient wine-growing regions - Tenerife, Ribeira Sacra, Almansa, and Extremadura.
Roberto Santana, Alfonso Torrente, Laura Ramos, and Jose Martinez met in enology school before launching a consulting business. They eventually evolved into Envinate, allowing them to explore different regions along the Atlantic, making fresh wines with local grape varieties. Their farming and winemaking techniques vary slightly by location, but they like to stick to a hands-off style to showcase each varietal and their distinct “terruno.” They farm organically, pick by hand, crush the grapes by foot, and ferment with wild yeasts resulting in wines with lively personalities, freshness, and distinct purity.
Luis Gutierrez of the Wine Advocate has been enthralled by Envinate for several years and recently awarded the 2020 Taganan Parcela Margalagua 99 Points - an impressive feat! He’s highlighted their ageability, quality, and value, noting they are "cheaper than most of the wines that deliver this quality" and are "an example of what can be achieved in the region with the right grapes and vinification."
