Note

Returns Fall 2022

Produced from a wild array of indigenous red varietals, but mainly Listán Negro, the vines here are very old and ungrafted, grown in the Taganana area of Tenerife. Whole cluster fermentation lends a truly Burgundian texture and lift to this wine with the added herbal notes picked up from the surrounding brush.
This wine shows very sophisticated texture and balance, with notes of red berries, volcanic earth, crisp acidity and coated tannins. Drink now or age 3-5 years.
