What does this wine taste like?
An open and expressive wine with aromas of red fruits. Juicy and accessible, but also complex and fresh. If you are not used to the interesting and revealing aromas of volcanic ash so typical of Orotava Valley wines, it is best to let it aerate a moment before enjoying this magnificent and charming jewel of a wine.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker
Ok, so I ordered this to try something different and because I frequently go to these islands for triathlon training. This wine was highly rated for the region. If anything, it reminds me of Gamay or perhaps pinot-noir from Switzerland (yes... what??). It' different, interesting, but not something I'd buy again. It has an extraordinary pink colour that doesn't look like wine at all. The taste is monolithic but elusive. Just reminded me of the volcanic soil and the wind...
Beautiful Atlantic wine
The wines from Tenerife North are special in terms of terroir offerings and full of mineral flavours. The wine is light and delicate with great raspberry and light acidity notes. A bargain
7 Fuentes 2018
A touch of farmyard on the nose and very reminiscent of a Loire red. First had at Brat and really enjoyed. Worth chilling a tiny bit.
This guy is a genius winemaker. Authentic wines from a unique landscape
Fresco,ágil fruta roja, buena acidez, mineral. Vino de placer. Un gran básico
Pensar en clima tropical, volcanes y ver cómo sorprende por su frescura, fruta roja jugosa, esa acidez que lo hace parecer un Ribera Sacra salvo por el característico toque mineral volcánico, no abusa de madera que enmascare. Vino para gente joven, inquieta. Marida genial con picoteo a base de embutidos, quesos; pizza,arroces. Acompañante de noches de verano. Ese tinto todo terreno diferente!!
