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.
Vineyard
Vijariego Blanco is a variety that offers great adaptability in the vineyard, growing from
sea-level up to 1,000 metres. The absence of phylloxera in the Canary Islands has
preserved many other unique varieties too, 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. The vineyards are manually cultivated, from
the beginning of August to mid-November; the higher the plot the later the harvest.
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 high quality. Fermentation
took place with the indigenous yeasts, in Allier oak barriques of 225 and 350 litres of
varying toast levels. The wine was aged in oak barrels, on its fine lees with regular
bâtonnage for four to six months.
