Puro Rofe "Masdache" Blanco, 2018, 750ml
Masdache is named for a small village on the southeastern edge of La Geira in Lanzarote and is sourced from Ascensión Robayna’s vineyard, Moro la Virgen. This site is planted with 100+-year-old Listán Blanco, Malvasía, and Diego. This vineyard is farmed organically and is harvested by hand and crushed whole-cluster in a stone lagar at Finca Mota. After a short maceration on the skins, the wine ferments by indigenous yeasts in French oak barrels and is aged on its lees in barrel for seven months before bottling.
An aromatic and fresh wine showing all the characters of the region. Flavoursome and complex with notes of citrus and apple alongside light tropical fruit and fino notes. Saline on the palate with light, grainy tannin. Super interesting and really good.
