Puro Rofe - Blanco 2019
Region: Lanzarote / Canary Islands
Grapes: Malvasia Volcanica / Listan Bianco / Vijariego
The entry-level white 2019 Rofe Blanco is a blend of grapes from different parts of Lanzarote - Malvasia Volcanica, Listan BLanco and Diego (aka Vijariego Blanco). The Malvasia ripens early so it's partly fermented in stainless steel and cooled down to wait for the Diego, which is picked approximately 25 days later! It was kept in stainless steel for egiht months. It's the wine that expresses the overall character of the island with the smoky and mineral character and a terse texture, a little wider than the 2018, still pungent, with 50% malolactic and a salty, iodine-driven and tasty finish. 3,200 bottles produced. Bottled in March 2020. 92 points - Luis Gutierrez. The Wine Advocate Issue 250.
