100% Vijariego Negro, which some say is the same grape as Sumoll and others contest is unique to the Canary Islands. Regardless, it tastes unique and distinctly volcanic when planted in Tenerife's soil.  Fermented in stainless and then goes through malo in 2nd year 300L French oak, where it ages until bottling.  Fewer than 1000 bottles made. Spicy, floral, age-worthy.
