An airy, effusive and downright beautiful wine is the 2018 Taganan from the Tenerife Envínate property of modernist Spanish winemakers Laura Ramos, Jose Martínez, Roberto Santana and Alfonso Torrente. Created from 100-200 year old vines on volcanic soils, it’s a delicate, restrained wine with a gorgeous, smoky bouquet of sour cherry, strawberries and Provençal herbs; the palate, meanwhile, is saturated with very fine tannins, almost imperceptible acidity and nice length. Served lightly chilled, this is an exciting wine which should gain further interest with age. — 15 days ago
Lots of minerality, lemons and peaches on the nose. The wife gets a whiff of vanilla.
A very fresh, very stony, refreshing white.
Perfect for sushi.
Very interesting and long finish, like licking rocks, in the best way.
Someone mentioned Chablis-like, I can see that, crisp yet yellow/white fruited w sense of earth. — a month ago
It is motor america, but might be a different blend: (callet, monastrel, manto negro) love drinking this- so different. Aromatic mineral, volcanic, cranberry, red licorice, ripe tomato. Grapefruit. Great acidity. Medium minus body. Young, but also mature? Probably goes with every food imaginable. — 2 days ago
Last bottle I had held onto but me methinks it was already on the downward slope. One of my fave Canary wines & so originally vital in all kinds of rose petal, forest leaves, & menthol notes, but now more muted. Bottle variability or just 7 years is pushing it? — 5 days ago
Explosive grapefruit taste and nose with hints of seaside minerals. Let it open for 30 minutes before diving in. — 16 days ago
Next time I’ll let it open for several hours — 15 days ago
