Like the other 'Benje' wine, this wine comes from several vineyards around Santiago del Teide in Tenerife. The Tinto is a blend of mostly Listán Prieto (90%), with Listan Blanco and Tintilla, from vineyards at around 1000-1200m. Climactically, this region is dry, windy, and continental in character, shielded from Atlantic influence by Mount Teide and by the elevation. The grapes are harvested by hand and fermented with indigenous yeasts before aging for 8 months in concrete and used French barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with a touch of sulfur. The 2021 is energetic, with bright red fruit, bing cherry, herbs and a touch more generosity than previous years. Tasty now, and should be great in a year +
