Details

Viñátigo Gual is a Spanish white wine produced in the idyllic Canary Islands.

This wine is a true rarity, as it is a single varietal Gual, an indigenous grape that grows almost exclusively in the island of Tenerife.

Produced by the Viñátigo winery, the wine belongs to the Ycoden-Daute-Isora DO.

Meticulously harvested, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Then Viñátigo Gual 2012 was aged on its lees.

Finally, the wine was clarified and stabilized prior to its bottling.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

Very bright, clean straw yellow colour with some greyish tinges.

 

Nose

Aromas of pears, watermelon and apples, combined with some remembrances of honey, green pineapples, white flowers and subtle mineral nuances.

 

Palate

Remembrances of citrus and white fruit, underpinned by some mineral and bitter touches. Expansive, but not heavy. Fresh acidity and long finish with remembrances of bitter almonds, lime and royal jelly.

Our personal opinion

Viñátigo Gual 2012 provides a great opportunity to enrich our knowledge of the rich heritage of indigenous grapes from the Canary Islands
