Bodegas Viñátigo Vijariego Blanco 2021

Vijariego Blanco is a remarkable white grape variety only to be found on the Canary Islands. The absence of phylloxera in the Canary Islands has preserved many other unique varieties too, creating an unparalleled viticultural heritage. As a result, all of the vines are ungrafted, allowing for a complete interaction between the plant and soil. The combination of volcanic soils, the cooling Alisios trade winds and the distinctive microclimates found on the island, contributes to the extraordinary personality of the wine. The grapes were cooled to 5°C prior to vinification. Sulphur was not added, because at these temperatures oxidation takes place more slowly, which permits the winemakers to work without the use of additives, while preserving the high quality. Fermentation took place with the indigenous yeasts, in Allier oak barriques of 225 and 350 litres of varying toast levels. The wine was aged in oak barrels, on its fine lees with regular bâtonnage for four to six months to create the perfect creamy texture. Fragrant aromas of pear and vanilla over smoky notes delightfully introduce this wine. An array of tropical fruits are complemented by citrus, spice and floral notes, while the striking acidity of this variety is beautifully balanced by creaminess from the barrel ageing.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
