Dry, high in acid and extremely refreshing, this pale pink rosado calls to mind a nervy Txakolina, charged with a uniquely Canary minerality. Direct-press.

 

"The Canary Islands have gotten so much attention in recent years that it’s easy to see this remote Spanish outpost as a fad. Then you re-taste the wines that remind you of why people started paying attention in the first place. That’s what happened with the latest vintage [2015] of this wine from Ignacio Valdera’s Los Bermejos, made from the indigenous listán negro grape. Its substantial, meaty side is on display as always, as is that balance of iodine and peaches. It’s one of our top two pink wines of the year."
