The Vijariego grape variety was introduced in the Canary Islands from Andalusia in the 16th century as table grapes or for drying into raisins. With large berries and a thick skin, it’s the last to ripen, together with the Muscat grape variety. This wine is made with Vijariego Blanco grapes from pre-phylloxera vines that are 80-100 years old, grown under a layer of volcanic ash. Production of 1,936 bottles.
On 17 August 2022, 3,000 kilos of grapes were harvested to make this varietal wine. The skin of these grapes is thick and the must is viscous, terpenic and of high acidity, which is why this wine is difficult to make with very low yields. But the upside is that it’s extremely original. The must started fermenting two days later after inoculating it with our own yeast. We carried out a traditional process to bring out its natural acidity. It has good ageing potential.
