Tajinaste Blanco: A Fantastic Tenerife White Wine

Tenerife's superb Tajinaste white wine Tenerife's superb Tajinaste white wine

The Costa Meloneras hotel in Gran Canaria have this on their a la carte restaurant wine list and it's a great example of a dry Canary Islands white. 

Tajinaste is made entirely from the local listan blanco grapes harvested by hand in small boxes to prevent bruising.  The 2014 dry white (blanco on the bottle) is a pale straw-yellow colour. One the nose it's got a clear note of green apple and a hint of pineapple. In the mouth, well-balanced acidity, more green apple, a touch of fennel and pineapple and a floral aftertaste. In short, a lovely crisp white with the intensity you expect from a Canarian wine.

In short, a lovely crisp white with the intensity you expect from a Canarian wine. Great served well-chilled with fish and rice dishes or drunk alone on a terrace as the sun sets. 

At around seven or eight euros a bottle this is good value and worth buying ahead of similarly priced Spanish whites.
