Victoria Torres Pecis 'Sin Titulo', La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain 2017

34.00

Every year, winemaker Viki Torres puts together an unnamed wine called ‘Sin Titulo’. While you grapple with that logical paradox, let me tell you a bit about it. It comes from the volcanic island of La Palma, one of the westernmost Canary Islands, and is a blend of two different parcels of Negramoll. One is the very first plot Viki harvested in late August. It’s in the south at 400 metres altitude in a zone called ‘Mazo’, where the vines are trained super low and tend to ripen the fastest. The second parcel is the very last one Viki harvested in late October, at 1400m altitude in the north of the island. Here the soils have much more organic matter with more sedimentation and vegetation.

The wine itself is gorgeous. Clearly volcanic in origin, with its sense of cold stone behind the bright-yet-deep cherry fruit and what at first feels like a hint of spice is more likely a light mineral smokiness. It’s an elegantly aromatic, but defiantly dry and rocky Atlantic red for the real terroiristas.

The grapes for the first harvest were partly destemmed and partly added as whole bunches. Fermentation kicked off in open vats and after 8 days of maceration the grapes were pressed and the wine was transferred to a 600 litre barrel. The last harvest was done in the opposite way - all destemmed, and all fermented and aged in steel tanks. After 9 months the two wines were blended and bottled. Unfined, unfiltered. 13.5% alc. Drink now-2025.
