Though the Canary Islands are a Spanish territory, they sit just 60 miles off the coast of Morocco. The ferocious winds and deep volcanic soils require grape growers to dig small craters surrounded by stone walls to shelter the vines. These hoyos that dot the black, hardened lava fields give the landscape an almost alien appearance. The result is low yielding vines that produce fruit with extreme concentration and flavor. This rosé made from, the grape Listán Negro, is no exception. Deceptively light in color but bursting with flavor and texture. Crunchy cranberries combine with orange peel on the palate with a healthy dose of salty and smoky volcanic minerality.

Pairings: Moroccan-spiced sea bass and cherry tomatoes over roasted poatoes
