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
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.
