Floral, vibrant and very fresh aromatics. Mineral notes, citrus, white stone fruit and fresh herbs fill out the aromatic palate. Full-bodied, juicy wine with gorgeous acid, good salinity and very persistent on the finish.
The Wine Advocate: 93pts
Vijariego Blanco, also known as Diego, is thought to have been introduced in the Canaries from Andalucía and is not a mutation of Vijariego. There are multiple spellings, most notably Vijariego and Vijiriego, even Bujariego in La Palma, but this name is not allowed anymore. It’s a grape with high acidity and lowish alcohol, so it’s often used for sparkling wines. The 2020 Vijariego Blanco is only 11.2% alcohol with a low pH of 3.14 and notable acidity, 7.5 grams (measured in tartaric acid per liter), so it’s a light and sharp wine true to the variety. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in 500-liter oak barrels, where it matured with lees for 10 months. It’s floral and vibrant, the latest-ripening grape here, with more freshness. It’s a wine that should develop nicely in bottle. This is a little shy compared with its siblings, but it’s a wine that will gain with time in bottle. 1,320 bottles were filled in June 2021.
