Blanco Seco

2018

A blend of ninety percent Listán Blanco, with ten percent Albillo Criollo, added for a burst of acidity. A bit over half of the fruit is grown at 500 meters of altitude, with the rest grown at 250 meters altitude. Hand-harvested and carried to the winery in small boxes of fifteen kilograms to avoid damaging the berries. 

As with almost all of the wines at Tajinaste, Agustín vinifies each parcel separately in inox tanks. One-fifth is aged in French barrels of two to three uses for two to three months. The wine is lightly fined with bentonite and is not filtered.

The nose is charming and easy-going, evocative of tropical fruits. The palate turns citrusy thanks to the addition of the Albillo Crillo. The finish is creamy and round, with a mineral edge that calls for the next sip.
