Description

Located in  Valle de la Orotava, Northern Tenerife, Bodega Tajinaste is named after the beautiful flower that grows on the island.  The Bodega is run by Agustin Garcia Farrais together with his parents Cecila and Agustin Snr.  Started by Agustin’s grandfather there are 3 hectares, the oldest of vines (Listan Negra) were planted in 1914.  In addition they rent 9 hectares from neighbours and purchase grapes from another 16 hectares, total under management is 28 hectares.  Trained in Bordeaux, Agustin vinifies each parcel separately and produces extremely consistent,  exceptional wines each year.

Listan Negro is primarily concentrated in the unique volcanic terroir of the Canary Islands, and vines are planted in small pits that are dug out of the ash-based soils.  These pits, which resemble the surface of the moon, capture moisture and also provide some shelter from strong, dry winds.  Listan Negro thrives in these volcanic soils, and is not found in this form in quantity anywhere else in the world.  Produced from 100% Listan Negra,  vinified in stainless steel; one-fifth of the fruit undergoes carbonic maceration. One-third of the wine goes into American oak for two to three months before release.   The colour is a deep ruby red with aromas of cherry and redcurrant with spicy undertones.  Flavoursome red fruits show through on the palate with a subtle hint of pepper.  Soft smooth tannins carry through to the elegant lingering finish.

 

Perfect with Grilled or Barbequed Lamb, Tapas, Spicy Pizza, Blue Cheeses.
