Vinatigo Tenerife Gual, 2022, 750ml
The 2022 Gual from Viñátigo is also a touch reductive when first opened, but this is the style of so many white wines from Tenerife. With air, it blossoms beautifully to delivers a very complex blend of lime, tart orange, iodine, salty minerality, beeswax, lemongrass, citrus peel and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, zesty and beautifully mineral in personality, with a fine core of fruit, excellent focus and balance and a long, complex and vibrant finish. I do not have any sese of how this wine ages, but it certainly seems to have the constituent components in place to easily last a dozen years or more.
