White wine from Listán Blanca that expresses the volcanic soil of Teide

Quantity

Viticulture and Vinification:

Soil: volcanic (rough red, basaltic) in Santiago del Teide, 1,000 m above sea level

Viticulture is organic. The soil is worked by hand without using any kind of chemicals. The vines are free-standing, completely untrained. Harvesting is done by hand.

Each parcel is vinified separately, in a mix of concrete tanks and open tubs. 75% of the fruit is pressed directly off the skins, the other 25% undergoes skin contact for between 14-40 days. The wine is aged for 8 months in 60% concrete and 40% old French barriques, on the fine lees. No battonage or sulfur is used. It is clarified using a little Bentonite, and bottled unfiltered.

Tasting notes:

Nose:  the mineral aromas stand out: sulfur, phosphorus, iron and graphite.

Palate:  we find apple memories in a very complex wine, with an acidic, sweet and bitter drink on a glyceric background.

Serving temperature:

8ºC
