"Paisaje de las Islas" Forastera Gomera
100% Foraestera Blanca from the island of La Gomera.
Good luck finding this grape anywhere outside of La Gomera island! Forastera Blanca usually makes a locally consumed wine, but Agustín was intrigued by the opportunity to make this overlooked grape into a great white wine under the "Paisaje de las Islas" or "Voyage through the Islands" label when his friend, who lives on La Gomera, showed him a superbly well-situated parcel on the north coast of the island. Agustín harvested at fourteen percent potential alcohol and was ridiculed by all the neighbors, who customarily harvest at fifteen percent. After a twenty-four-hour cold soak, the wine was fermented in stainless and aged in 500-liter French oak barrels. Singular.
