23.01₣ (Exc. VAT bot. 75 cl.) / Switzerland
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The red from 2018 was a revelation, as we all had the whites from Lanzarote in mind. So, I had high expectations for the 2019 Rofe Tinto, pure Listán Negro from different parts of Lanzarote (Tinajo, La Geria, Masdache, etc.). It was produced in a simple and approachable way, fermented with 10% full clusters in plastic bins and used barriques and matured in clay tinaja (amphora) and used 500-liter oak barrel for six months. This was a big surprise right from the beginning, as nobody associates Lanzarote with red wine. It has the herbal and peppery sensations intermixed with smoky and stony undertones, with the volcanic ash sensation coming strong on the palate as well, where there's also a saline touch. It feels a little rounder than the 2018. Think of a volcanic and salty Cabernet Franc for an idea of what you're going to get... 2,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2020.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Fermented with indigenous yeasts with whole bunches in amphorae, oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
