This dry red wine from 100% Listán negro (pronounced lee-STAN neh-gro) grown on hillside vineyards at a height of 600 metres above sea level. These are old vines - 40% are planted using the multiple braided cordon system, and the remainder on trellis’s - and the grapes are hand harvested at ideal ripeness. The grapes are cold macerated for 4 days prior to fermentation (total maceration is 12 days), and both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations take place in stainless steel tanks. About a third of the wine is aged for two months in American oak barrels. Alc./vol. 13%

Grapes: Listán negro is widely planted in the Canaries, particularly Tenerife, and originated in Spain’s Castille region where it is called Listán Prieto. It is the black-skinned version of Palomino grape, and is genetically identical to the Mission grape (aka Pais) that was introduced to the Americas by Spanish explorers. 

Our Tasting Note:Youthful, bright cherry colour, with violet hues. Highly aromatic, reminiscent of fresh red fruits - cranberry, cherry, and plum - with peppery/balsamic notes. Smooth, with balancing acidity, medium tannins, and a clean finish. 

Pairing:Charcuterie, veal, grilled pork, pizza, burgers, medium/hard cheeses.
