2019 vintage: Taste and drops of the moon, a fanciful moniker and a delightful AOCChardonnay at exactly the correct weight and depth you expect and demand. Add to that a moment of solid ’18 ripeness and styling for just perfectly correct and necessary Chablis. It’s what you need. Drink 2019-2021. Tasted November 2019.
About the Winery
Juan Jesús is a proud native of Tenerife and the fourth generation of growers. During the thirty years that he's overseen Bodegas Viñátigo, he has considerably increased its holdings, planting varieties that he and his team recuperated from near extinction.
Driven by passion and love for his homeland, Juan decided to revive and work to save the native grape varieties that were brought to the Canary Islands by the conquers back in the 15th century and that had survived on the islands for centuries. He is a hero of contemporary Canarian viticulture. The wealth of knowledge that his work has created has helped underpin the significant expansion of wine styles that are now available throughout the archipelago, and his wines have achieved a calibre of class that many doubted the Canaries would ever produce again. (The Epic Wines of the Canary Islands, written by Santo Bains).
