Tenerife, Canary Islands
Field Blend: Listan Negro, Listan Rosado, Negramoll, Vijariego Negro, Tintina, Malvasia Rosada
Elegant and detailed - this wine has impeccable clarity and focus with finely grained but grippy tannins and pure flavours. This is a blend of local grape varieties that have been fermented with wild yeasts and aged for 9 months in neutral french oak barrels. Sortevera is a collaborative project between winemaker Jonatan Garcia and grower Jose Angel Alonso Ramos.
This is a field blend of three smalll plots that are 100-200 yr old, with organic bush vines from the most northern part of the island Taganana. Taganana is quite possibly one of the most visually stunning regions in the world, with small vines planted on steep slopes directly overlooking the vast Atlantic ocean. The yields in this region are very low and all work is done by hand.
