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.


Vintage
The 2018 vintage was generally a cool year, which translated into beautiful aciditydriven 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
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.


Tasting Note
Fragrant aromas of pear and vanilla over smoky notes delightfully introduce this
wine. An array of tropical fruits are complemented by citrus, spice and floral notes,
while the striking acidity of this variety is beautifully balanced by creaminess from the
barrel ageing.
