Dolores Cabrera La Araucaria Tinto 2016
La Araucaria tinto is made from centenarian Listan Negro vines planted on Mount Teide’s slopes in the unique cordón trenzado (“braided cord”) method. The grapes are hand-harvested and 100% destemmed, with primary fermentation in steel tank followed by malolactic and aging in old Burgundy barrels for 10 months. Bottled without fining or filtration, and very little SO2 added. This is a pure expression of volcanic Canary terruño with notes of red and black fruits, cracked peppercorns, purple flowers, and volcanic soil. Pair it with grilled meats & poultry, charred octopus or mojo rojo.
