Puro Rofe 2018 Vino BlancoRegular price £29
Lanzarote's lunar landscape is home to truly unique vineyards. Hand-dug pits known as hoyos have a single vine planted at the bottom, allowing them to access the water below, protected from the Saharan wind which sweeps across the surface. Puro Rofe is a collaboration among local growers, led by Rayco Fernandez. Their white comes from 100+ year old Malvasía Volcanica and Diego vines, with a touch of Listán Blanco. Foot-crushed and fermented in stone lagares, it is fresh, lively and with a slightly salty complexity.
Malvasia Vulcanica, Diego. Foot-crushed and fermented in stone lagares. Aged for seven months in stainless steel.
