2017 Los Bermejos Listàn Negro Rosado, Brut Nature, Lanzarote, Canary Islands

Listàn Negro is the most widely planted red variety in the Canaries, although its character can vary widely from island to island. On Lanzarote, Ignacio Valdera has crafted a unique dry sparkling wine from an old-vine parcel on his property. Bottled according to the methode champenoise with no dosage, the finished wine has a pale complexion and a volcanic aromatic that reminds us of Sicilian wine from Etna. Delicious, and delightfully different.
