Victoria Torres Pecis - Negramoll 2018
(La Palma, Canary Islands)
An astounding wine of unique volcanic origins. On the light side, but packed with so much flavour and character, a wine that will reveal hidden layers as the night progresses. Gorgeous fruit, smoky and earthy edges, and a long mineral finish.
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.
