“Oracan” Valle de Güímar
The winery’s fascinating skin-contact wine “Oracan” comes from a site within the Los Pelados zone called La Degollada, situated at 1300 meters altitude and planted to 70-year-old Listán Blanco. Bunches are de-stemmed, and the whole berries are sealed in clay jars and fermented on their skins for two months; afterward, the skins are removed, and the wine continues aging in the same vessel on its lees for six more months. Showing impressive elegance for a skin-contact white, “Oracan” offers a gentle handshake of tannins underneath a layer of cleanly articulated pit fruits and spices. A honeyed floral element augments the wine’s sense of gracefulness.
