Review

A group of seven friends met in 1998 to undertake a wine project in the Canary Islands for the production of garage wines. Bodegas Buten, attached to the denomination of origin Tacoronte-Acentejo, in Tenerife, produces only two wines: Cráter and Magma de Cráter, with the autochthonous varieties Listan Negro and Negramoll.

Authentic unknown, these varieties are grown on volcanic clay soils 400 meters above sea level presided over by the Teide. The soils, black and volcanic, imprint all the race and character to the wines, which are "special" and different from the rest of the wines that we have been able to taste.

Only 20,000 crater bottles are produced; a unique and authentic wine that will not leave you indifferent to a savory and aromatic range that will make you feel strange and uncomfortable. A wine of pure volcano, garnet colors and light movement that demonstrate its low concentration. Only approaching the pituitary, explode doses of gunpowder, camphor, black licorice, plums in liquor, black pepper and spices, all collected under a curious saline note and mineral granite stone.

Fresh, classic and thin texture perfectly define the mouth. Sensations of black olives, cold metal, iron, blood, rust and black ash are what we find. The wine expands perfectly in the mouth, with a lot of fluidity, leaving a finally fresh taste, with sensations of wood grain, black ash and a minimum astringency.

After a few hours the wine begins to reduce and begin to emanate vegetable notes of rapa and the smell of the oxide of the classic square pile.

Due to a light filtering it is possible that they find tartrate salts deposited in the bottle or in the stopper.

Crater, came from salt volcano!
