Bodegas Monje ‘La Hollera’ Listan Negro * Tacoronte-Acentejo, Tenerife, Canary Islands 2017

$26.50

We can’t bring too many wines to the table that are more ‘out there’ than ones from the Canary Islands. You’d be hard pressed to find more unique vineyard climates and soils than from these volcanic rocks positioned off the North West corner of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean. Bodegas Monje combines tradition in their wines with their own modern flair that is equally as extraordinary. Hosting tasting events that range from culinarily focused to aerobically challenging to sensual exploration certainly draws attention beyond their delicious wines.

Bodegas Monje ‘La Hollera’
Listan Negro
Tacoronte-Acentejo, Tenerife, Canary Islands 2017

A wildly distinct wine from an equally distinct landscape. Charred red peppers and smokey pomegranates. There is a strong presence of freshly ground black pepper to accompany the blueberries and blackberries on the mid palate. You’re left with an intriguing bitter citrus rind flavor that can easily, and with great delite, be compared to Campari. This wine is fermented semi-carbonically so although it has plenty of complexity, it finishes quite clean and free of any tannic bite.
