2012 Bodega Dominguez Tacoronte Acentejo (Canary Islands) (Previously $35)

SKU #1291000

Pre-phylloxera listan negro, negramoll, tintilla and listan blanco, the reds vinified separately (but each with listan blanco added to the fermentation) prior to blending, form the basis of this red. Elegant cherry and currant aromas lead to a palate whose fruit purity is nearly overshadowed by the gentle, light as a feather texture. Like an island version of a classic Rioja, this wine is as much about textural grace as it is about flavor. A highly impressive wine for drinking now or cellaring.

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
