Vega Norte Blanco Afrutado

TYPE OF GRAPES:
This wine is made from the “Listan Blanco de Canarias” variety, which is the most widely planted white grapes variety in the Canary Islands due to its high resistance to diseases and difficult climatic conditions. The wines of this variety are characterized by adequate acidity and glyceric content, freshness and fruit aroma. The vineyard arises majestically among the centenary pine wood, being thus the unique scenery created by the effort and the knowledge of numerous generations.
Our spur pruning system is the traditional one and the vines are grown on their own rootstock on non-irrigated land. At this altitude the subtropical climate of the archipelago is combined and eventually transformed in the continental one, allowing the vineyard to experience the winter break (vegetative stop), an agreeable spring awakening and a summer with thermal changes that favour a slow ripening process.
