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 centuryold 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
Gual 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 Gual grapes (a local synonym for Madeira's Bual) were hand-picked cooled to
almost 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 indigenous yeasts, 50% of the grapes were fermented in stainless
steel tanks at 16°C and 50% took place in concrete eggs, which increased the round
texture and creaminess in the wine. The wine was aged on its lees in concrete egg shaped tanks.


Tasting Note
A wonderfully aromatic wine with layers of smoky notes, jasmine, melon and tropical
pineapple on the nose. Concentrated tropical fruit flavours are complemented by a
rich, creamy palate and an everlasting finish.
