Canary Islands Wine: A Tenerife Gual Varietal Made For Seafood

Viñatigo's Gual varietal wine is a must try Viñatigo's Gual varietal wine is a must try www.photosgrancanaria.com

A Tenerife dry white that balances out volcanic minerals and tropical fruit flavours.

From Viñatigo, the great pioneers of varietal Canarian wines, and still amongst the best wineries in Tenerife and the Canary Islands.

This DO Ycoden Daute Isora wine is one of the few opportunities to try Gual (a distant cousin of Malvasia that is known as Bual in Madeira) in its pure state. At under 10 euros a bottle, it's well worth taking.

The nose is mineral with hints of tropical fruit and citrus. In the mouth, medium bodied with a creaminess and hints of wood even though it's never seen a barrel. Flavourwise it's a battle between austere minerals and tropical fruit flavours. The result is an honourable draw and a great wine.

Serve slightly warmer than fridge temperature as the fruit doesn't stand out when it's too cold.

This wine is made for seafood.
