Canary Islands, Spain

Envinate

Táganan Vinos Atlánticos White Blend 2018

Deep gold in the glass. This bottle was super reductive at first; but behind the pungent barnyard was lots of smoke and flint, and a seriously loaded palate of stony minerals and firm, just-ripe tropical-leaning fruits. So concentrated on the palate with dried salty yellow plums and a sweetness of ripe apples on the finish. Delicious. Definitely needed a decant though. — 6 days ago

How long did you let it air? I have a bottle of my own I might crack open

@Michael Mine took about an hour decant. But my bottle could have been different than others so maybe just pull the cork earlier in the day to see?

Gotta love the Canary Island unique varietals! Sounds great to me!

Lanzarote Malvasia Volcánica Seco 2018

Lovely white. Quite complex. Stony, minerally, herbal, white pepper, bright and crisp. Some tropical hints too without being overdone. Impressive. — 23 days ago

Your description of the white seems to fit the rosé as well

Bodegas Los Bermejos

Lanzarote Listan Negro 2017

We love island wines, this is no exception. Chewy tannin, black earth, cherry, slate. Rocks and dirt, as someone else said. If you like Beaujolais, give this a try—it may just blow your mind. — 25 days ago
