A past vintage was written up in The New York Times article: 20 Reds Under $20: Where the Values Live, for Now.
The scattering of volcanic islands just off the southwest coast of Morocco known as the Canary Islands produces wonderful wines that are often great values. This one comes from Monje, a good family estate on Tenerife, in the center of the chain. It’s made largely of the listan negro grape, blended with a little negramoll and some listan blanco, a white grape better known as palomino. It’s lovely and slightly exotic with the barest tannic grip. - The New York Times

Winemaker Notes:
5% Listan Negro, 10% Negramoll, 5% Listan Blanco, co-fermented in stainless steel and raised for 4 months in old 1000L American oak. Bottled unfiltered.

Like the addition of a small percentage of Viognier to the Syrah-based wines of Cote-Rotie, the addition of Listan Blanco is a long-standing practice in the islands to add lift, but also longevity to the wines
