Dolores Cabrera, La Araucaria Rosado (2019)
Varietal - Listan Negro
Region - Tenerife, Canary Islands
Importer Notes - Jose Pastor Selections
La Araucaria rosado is made from centenarian Listan Negro vines planted on Mount
Teide’s slopes in the unique cordón trenzado (“braided cord”) method. The grapes are hand-harvested and 100% destemmed, skin-macerated for 12 hours and the juice bled off without pressing to ferment in steel tank. Bottled with light fining and filtration, and minimal SO2 added. This is a pure expression of volcanic Canary terruño with notes of red and black fruits, cracked peppercorns, purple flowers, and volcanic soil. Pair it with grilled meats & poultry, charred octopus or mojo rojo.
