The second white wine from the Paisaje de las Islas series which is the personal project of the winemaker Agustin Garcia to develop wines from local grape varetees.
This wine is made from 50% Malvasia aromática and 50% Marmajuelo, both grown in Tenerife. Malvasia Aromatica should not be confused with the grape of a similar name used in Rioja as they are genetically distinct. Check out the article by Spanish Wine Lover on work underway to distinguish the different local Spanish grape varieties.
It had a pale straw colour with a very light scent of lemon and the underlying volcano scent.
A dry wine that is nicely rich the mouth. Medium body and a medium long finish. Good balanced acidity. It tastes of Lemon and white fruit, but not overwhelming.
By far the best of the night. This is the second wine I’ve tried with the Marmajuelo grape variety and I’ve loved both. Check out more on this grape here.
