Floral & Mineral

Juan Jesús, who is a 4th generation winemaker, founded Viñátigo in 1990 and has worked tirelessly since then identifying, recuperating the native grapes of the Canary Islands. This sweet wine is Viñátigo's homage to what the Canary Island Wines once were: the most appreciated wine in the world. Have a look at some of Shakespeare's lines in Henry VI: "But, i' faith, you have drunk too much canaries, and that’s a marvellous searching wine, and it perfumes the blood ere one can say “What’s this?” How do you now?"

This Malvasia vines grow near the Ocean, in very mild weather conditions with an important marine influence. This is a late harvest wine. The sweetness of the wine comes from the natural sugar of the grapes. It is aged for a year on its fine lees in French oak barrels. On the nose, it has aromas of bitter orange peel, rose petals, dried apricots and almonds. It has beautiful notes of jasmine and other white flowers and an unwavering acidity and roundness on the palate.

Perfect to pair with cheese boards, foie-gras and desserts.

About the Winery

Viñátigo

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 all 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. However, these grapes were about to disappear. Viticulture was being abandoned in the archipelago and international varieties were being planted to appeal to the international market, that was until Viñátigo rescued them.
