Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain
Public service announcement, TRY THIS WINE!
Grown on the prehistoric looking island of Lanzarote only 78 miles from the African coast, where fierce winds coming from the Sahara desert and the Atlantic ocean require the vines to be protected and planted in holes in the ground called hoyos. Listán Negro is the perfect partner for the Pinot Noir and Gamay loving wine drinker. This wine presents a fresh bouquet of wild strawberry, licorice and thyme with tastes of green bell pepper, golden raspberry and red currant on the palate. Pair this island beauty with fried frog legs, duck liver paté or a roasted leek tart.
