Green fruit aromas combine with an enticing hint of
fennel. A lovely flinty, full-flavoured wine with great
intensity and a long, saline finish.
Producer Note
The philosophy behind Bodegas Viñátigo is to revive and promote the extensive varietal
heritage of the Canary Islands. The journey started in the 1990s, at a century-old plot in
the village of La Guancha, in the north of Tenerife, where the traditional varieties of
Listán Blanco and Listán Negro were vinified in the old family winery. With an
uncompromising eye on quality, this dynamic winemaking project has subsequently
expanded to produce thrilling, modern wines from varieties such as Gual, Marmajuelo
and Vijariego. Bodegas Viñátigo’s ethos is respectful of the environment, both in the
vineyard where sustainable winegrowing practices are applied; and in the construction
of its state-of-the-art winery which was built in 1997 from local materials and designed to
minimise energy consumption.
Vintage
The 2020 harvest produced an average yield and excellent quality for this variety. The
year began with good rainfall levels, which encouraged the vegetative development of
the vines and nourished the vines throughout the warm summer months that followed.
The weather allowed the vines to stay healthy and as picking started early they were
not affected by the heatwave at the end of August. The grapes were in excellent
health, with good sugar and acidity levels which translated into balanced wines with
excellent varietal expression.
Vineyard
The absence of phylloxera in the Canary Islands has preserved many unique varieties
creating an unparalleled viticultural heritage. As a result, all of the vines are ungrafted,
allowing for a complete interaction between the plant and soil, which helps to impart
the marked minerality in the wines. The combination of volcanic soils, the cooling Alisios
trade winds and the distinctive microclimates found on the island, contributes to the
extraordinary personalities of the wines. The vineyard is managed sustainably without
the use of herbicides or synthetic products. Due to the orography of the land, the
vineyards are manually cultivated resulting in handcrafted wines.
Winemaking
The grapes were cooled to almost 0°C prior to vinification. Sulphur was not added,
because at these temperatures oxidation takes place more slowly, which permits the
winemakers to work without the use of additives, while preserving the quality.
Fermentation took place with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks at 16°C. The
wine was made in an unoaked style, preserving the characteristics of the Listán Blanco
variety.
