Listán Blanco from high elevation (1000-1200m) vineyards on the sunny, dry and continental north-west side of Mount Teide, near the town of Santiago del Teide. The vineyards range in age from 70-110 years old, and are farmed either by the Envinate team, or one of 15 local families who work with them. Vineyards are untrained (traditional for the area), and worked by hand without any chemical treatments used. The grapes see up to 1-2 days of skin contact during fermentation, which is in concrete. The wines rest on the lees in a mixture of used French oak, and concrete tanks. A little flor developed in one of the concrete vats, so there is a hint of an oxidative note to the wine. Listan Blanco is also known as Palomino and the profile is unmistakable here, as Palomino (much like Savagnin in my opinion) has an oxidative lean even without the development of flor/voile. The 2021 has a salty nose, with a touch of lemon and ginger nice phenolic texture. Good acid and balance! -EL
