(10/2023) This Canary Island white comes from 70-to-110 year-old Listan Blanco vines in western Tenerife at 2700-3600 feet. Ultra-traditional farming of untrained, ungrafted vines yield fruit which sees some extended maceration before resting in used French oak barrels and concrete tanks before being bottling with nearly no sulfur, unfined and unfiltered. Wild, pungent aromas of dried florals, ash, white pepper, dried yellow apple, broom, pineapple, candle wax and umeboshi are haunting and shape-shifting. The long, savory, salty and penetrating palate has surprising texture for a racy 12% ABV wine, almost tannic on its closing mineral edge. Niche, but masterful for its fans and good crossover for Etna or Campanian enthusiasts too!
