The wine

The Listán Negro grapes used to produce this wine come from the El Esquilón parcel. After destemming the grapes without pressing, the must undergoes alcoholic fermentation with natural yeasts for 14 days, with stirring by hand, at a temperature of 28º. After a post- fermentation maceration lasting 10 days, the wine is drawn off into new French (Allier) oak barrels, where malolactic fermentation takes place in contact with the lees, followed by ageing for at least 8 months, and finally, bottling without filtration. Due to this parcel's low yields, production is very limited per vintage.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The single-vineyard 2019 El Esquilón comes from a silty plot at 450 to 550 meters in altitude planted with old Listán Negro vines pruned in the braided cordón trenzado system traditional in la Orotava. It fermented with full clusters in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts and had a maceration of 23 days. It matured in used 500-liter oak barrels for 14 months. It's 12.6% alcohol. This is from a higher altitude with sandier soils and has more complexity and depth, more nuance and elegance. It has something Nebbiolo-like that I loved. A volcanic Nebbiolo, that is! This could be the hidden gem of the winery, often overlooked because of the pricing. 4,100 bottles were produced. It was bottled in December 2020.
