ENSAMBLAJE TINTO 2018
By blending different red grape varieties, Viñátigo's goal with their Ensamblaje red is to showcase the volcanic minerality of the northwest of Tenerife. Depending on the conditions of the vintage, the proportions and grapes blended in this wine may vary. The grapes are harvested and vinified separately. The Ensamblaje Tinto has a spicy, firey nose with strong pepper, forest mushroom and jam. On the palate it is big and muscular with firm tannins that allow the ground fruit notes to really show themselves.
VIJARIEGO NEGRO 2019
Viñatigo's Vijariego Negro plot is in El Palmar valley, a rural and protected area in the very north-west of Tenerife. The slopes of this valley have resulted from the erosion of Teno's massif, Tenerife's first volcanic land that emerged from the Ocean 11 million years ago. At 700 meters above sea level, the weather is more extreme than by the Ocean, this range of temperatures ensure a deep concentration in the grapes. Vijariego Negro ages for 10 months in barrels. This wine is smoky and saline, with aromas of blackcurrant and fine tannins on the palate. Only the combination of the volcanic soils and the Atlantic climate can make this happen!
