What this wines tells us
Another sweet wine that reflects the Canary Islands’ benevolent climate. Its sherry-like style combined with its oxidative touches makes it special and provides an attractive bouquet. As soon as it is poured, it shows light notes of glue that dissolve with some aeration; later it is very complex, with notes of fig, coffee, marzipan, and wax. On the palate, it is perfectly balanced, full of flavor, with a long finish reminiscent of roasted chestnuts.
Its dancing partner
Very nice with a Quesadilla “El Hierro-style”.
This winery produces two great sweet wines, a red, mainly from the Baboso Negro grape, and the white described above, almost a monovarietal from the Marmajuelo grape (on El Hierro it is called Bremajuelo). The first is a Reserva, and the second one very close to being one as well.
