96/100p The Wine Advocate: “The next cool vintage of the Parcela Seoane single-vineyard bottling is the 2018 Lousas Parcela Seoane, as the 2016 could not be produced because the vines suffered from hail, just like what has happened in 2018 with the other regular single-vineyard bottling. 2018 was a cool and rainy year after the earliest harvest on record. The idea here is to show the expression of different climats in the Doade zone, as other growers also do. Here, they work with wine grower Miguel Anxo, and they feel the work in the vineyard shines through especially clear in 2018. The vines are over 80 years old, and in all these vineyards the dominant grape is Mencía, but there's always a field blend, and in this case, it includes perhaps 5% Merenzao, Brancellao and Alicante Bouschet. The soils are mostly gneiss with mica and quartz. It fermented with 100% full clusters in open plastic bins, without temperature control, with indigenous yeasts and soft punch-downs by hand, like they were massaging the cap. Malolactic was in a 350-litre and a 500-litre oak barrels, and the wine matured with the lees in barrel for 12 months without racking. The wine is super perfumed and nuanced, with a different twist, blood orange and a touch of curry/exotic spices. The palate reveals very fine and subtle minerality, great focus and symmetry and it's long, vibrant and fresh and super tasty. Without a doubt, this is the finest Seoane to date. Drink now-2028.”

Envínate on vapaasti käännettynä kehotus viiniytyä (Wine Yourself). Yrityksen perusti neljä ystävää, jotka tapasivat enologian opinnoissa Alicantessa vuonna 2005. Valmistuessaan he perustivat konsultointifirman, josta muodostui Envínate, jolla on tarhoja Ribeira Sacrassa (Alfonso Torrente), Kanariansaarilla (Roberto Santana), ja Laura Ramoksen ja José Martínezin projektit Extremadurassa ja Almansassa. Kollektiivin pyrkimys on tehdä erittäin puhtaita ja autenttisia viinejä, jotka ilmentävät alkuperäänsä. Tarhoilla ei käytetä kemikaaleja, sato korjataan käsin, rypäleet murskataan jalan, viinit käyvät villihiivoilla, kypsyvät vanhoissa tammitynnyreissä ja sulfiitteja lisätään ainoastaan tarpeen mukaan pullotuksessa. 

Envinate on raikas tuulahdus Espanjan viinispektriin. Tuotanto on melko pientä ja maine on kiirinyt maailmalle, joten saatavuudet ovat todella pieniä. Tenerife, Ribeira Sacra tai Almansa, Envinaten viinit ovat aina maistamisen arvoisia ja tuovat hymyn huulille.
