Victoria Torres Pecis - Las Pieles 2017
(La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain)
This is a totally one-off cuvée which Viki has not made since the 2017 vintage. A beautiful skin-contact Listan Blanco with supercharged minerality, a stunning texture, and a finish that lingers. On the nose it's floral, delicate, yet so intriguing. On the palate it's one of those wines that packs in so much flavour yet remains undeniably fresh and drinkable.
Victoria Torres is one of the very few growers still producing wine on La Palma. The work is painstaking and the yields are minuscule, but the results are more than worth the effort. She makes wines that have it all - a strong sense of place, intense complexity, buckets of energy, and that little extra 'magic' that you can't learn or replicate.
