an intriguing wisp of toffee. A smooth and rounded
palate with a gentle, pleasant 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 2018 vintage was generally a cool year, which translated into beautiful acidity driven wines. This freshness also ensured the wines have a fruit-forward quality. The vines
yielded an average harvest, but the quality of the fruit was very high.
Vineyard
Negramoll prefers mild weather and grows near the ocean, in plots near the villages of
San Juan de la Rambla and Garachico, in the North-West of Tenerife. The vines thrive
at below 200 metres’ elevation. 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. 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.
Winemaking
The grapes were cooled to 5°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 at 25°C. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for just
six months, to ensure the varietal expression could shine through.
Tasting Note
Aromas of red fruits are complemented by mellow hints of toffee caramel and roasted
coffee beans. The subtle and smooth tannins dance perfectly with a beautifully
balanced acidity, through to a deliciously persistent finish.
