TASTING NOTES: 

Richly aromatic - with notes of honey, dates, and raisins. Great balance between the sweetness and acidity with a long, rich finish. Being medium-sweet, this is a lovely wine to pair with a cheese course, and fresh fruits.

This sweet (Dulce means sweet) white wine is made from 100% Malvasia Aromática, hand-harvested late in September from hillside vineyards (with volcanic soils) at a height of 250-500 metres above sea level.  Naturalmente means the grapes are naturally dried on the vines, to concentrate the sugars. 

Vinification is in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks, and then the wine is aged for 6 months in 500L French-oak barrels. 16.5% alc./vol. and 57.7 gr,/L. RS. 

The winery was established in 1977, commercializing the Garćia Farráis family vineyards in the Orotava Valley on Tenerife, part of the Canary Islands. Some of the family’s oldest stocks of Listán negro and Listán blanco vines were planted in 1914, using a unique horizontal vine training system known as multiple braided cordon (cordón múltiple trenzado). Newer vineyards use the more common single- and double-Cordon (Royat) trellising systems. 

Working with indigenous varieties, the modern winery respects family and regional traditions, as well the unique geography - high-altitude vineyards - and volcanic soil of Tenerife, to create wines of great character and individuality.
