This is a hugely exciting wine by any standards, although it's probably not a wine for learner drinkers or those who still have their stabilisers on, because it's from unusual terrain.  Old vineyards on a volcano in the Atlantic Ocean are unlikely to produce a wine you can ignore and this mesmerisingly complex and delicious wine is undeniably informed by its rocky, salty, maritime birthplace.  It's as thrilling to our tastebuds as any of the great white Burgundies, which can express their origins with similar eloquence, and it shares some of the struck flint and insistent fruit of the very best. Even if you don't think it's one of the most exciting wines you have ever tasted, as we do, you'll be amazed by its sense of drama.

Clay soils at 350-450 m. Listan Blanco vines of 100+ years old on volcanic and basaltic soils. Fermented in used 500-litre barrels, with 10 months on lees.

Jancis Robinson: "Smoky, mildly reductive (effect of volcanic soils, apparently), tight, bone dry and seriously sophisticated. Almost sour in its stony/grapefruit character." 17 points
