Migan, Envinate 2021

Tasting Notes

The Migan Tinto bottling from A Chingao Vineyards and Envínate is made solely from Listán Negro, grown in a mid-slope parcel of the Migan vineyard. The wine is seventy-five percent whole cluster, is fermented and aged for eight months in cement vats and bottled unined and unfiltered. The 2021 is quite reductive when first poured and needs a bit of time in decanter to blossom, but eventually a complex bouquet of dark berries, bitter cherry, cigar ash, volcanic soils, damp herb tones, a touch of tree bark and a hint of curry in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and complex, with a lovely core, superb mineral undertow and grip, ripe tannins and a long, well-balanced and very promising finish. This needs some hibernation time to soften up tis tannins a bit more; it will be a fine bottle once it is truly ready to drink. 2031-2060.
