Description

This dry white wine is made of 90% Listán blanco (pronounced lee-STAN blahn-ko), hand-harvested from hillside vineyards at a height of 250-500 metres above sea level, and 10% Albillo criollo (pronounced al-bee-yo cree-oh-yo). Approximately 20% of the wine completes fermentation and aging for 2-3 months in 2nd- and 3rd-passage oak barrels, while the rest of the wine is fermented in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks.

Listán blanco, the most-planted white variety of the Canaries, was introduced to the Canaries in the late 15th century and is the same grape as Palomino Fino, the variety of choice for sherry production. In the right conditions (e.g. the Canarias) it offers aromas and flavours reminiscent of peaches, citrus, almonds, and fresh-cut herbs, with mineral notes. Albillo criollo is a unique version of the highly-aromatic Albillo Real, found only on the Canarias. Used mainly for blending, it contributes acidity, texture (glycerin), and tropical aromas.

Tasting Note

Bright, pale straw yellow in colour. Highly aromatic (tropical) reminiscent of warm apples, red grapefruit, pineapple, apricots, with mineral notes. Crisp acidity, and a dry, smooth, long, clean finish.

Albillo Crillo:

Bodegas Tajinaste

Bodegas Tajinaste was established in 1977, commercializing the Gar?ia Farráis family vineyards in the Orotava Valley on Tenerife, part of the Canary Islands. Some of the family’s oldest stocks of Listán negro and Listán blanco vines were planted in 1914, using a unique horizontal vine training system known as multiple braided cordon (cordón múltiple trenzado). Newer vineyards use the more common single- and double-Cordon (Royat) trellising systems.
Working with indigenous varieties, the modern winery respects family and regional traditions, as well the unique geography - high-altitude vineyards - and volcanic soil of Tenerife, to create wines of great character and individuality. The Enologist is Agustin G. Farráis.
