“To me this is a bargain, because it delivers world class at an unbelievable price. The challenge is to find it... Buy it if you can!” - 97 points, The Wine Advocate

This comes from one of the most dramatic vineyards in Tenerife (please email me - james@vincognito.co.uk - for a photo, because words can’t do it justice!). The wine itself is as pale as rosehip cordial. So fresh, so pure, so elegant, so Tenerife! The fruit is beautifully pared down, as if reduced to its bare essence. Thinly sliced strawberries and cherries and rose petals. Elegance personified. 12% alc. Drink now-2022.

Press review:

The Wine Advocate: “Always a spectacular red that showcases the volcanic soils and the cooler Atlantic climate from the northeast corner of Tenerife, the 2017 Táganan Parcela Margalagua has red basalt soils, rather than the more usual black, where the colour is provided by some iron in the soil. They reckon the iron provides finer tannins. The nose is always a lot more floral, delicate and all about finesse, to which iron should certainly help. It's also volcanic and spicy, but the dominant note is floral. The palate is medium-bodied and incredibly elegant, with a tasty and faint saltiness, following the line of the 2016, perhaps with a tad more precision. They use a small percentage of white grapes, something they started in 2015. To me this is a bargain, because it delivers world class at an unbelievable price. The challenge is to find it... Buy it if you can!” 97 points
