Verdello is the same grape that is planted in Madeira and Azores, which has nothing to do with the ubiquitous Verdejo from Rueda. The 2020 Verdello, planted around the winery in sandy soils, fermented in a 1,500-liter oak foudre, where it matured with lees for 10 months. It has moderate alcohol and ripeness (12.3% alcohol) and good freshness and acidity. This is very floral, aromatic and a little exotic, closer to the Marmajuelo and Malvas??a Volc??nica, a little ?? la Viognier. Despite not having gone through malolactic, the wine has a lactic-like touch, with the benefit of good freshness. It has pungent flavors and an almost salty finish. It's a dry and healthy place, similar to the south of the other islands, and easy to work given the atmospheric conditions.

Tamer??n is a new project that emerged on the island of Gran Canaria in 2019. This winery is owned by David Silva, the famous soccer player who played for Spain?€?s national team as well as Manchester City. Silva was born on Gran Canaria and has always had an interest in wine. He acquired an old wine estate in the center of the island, which had 6 hectares of vineyards already planted to a mix of native Canarian varieties, such as Verdello, Marmajuelo, Baboso Blanco, Vijariego Blanco, Aromatica Malvas??a, Malvas??a Volc??nica, Vijariego Negro, etc. These vineyards are located between 620 and 700 meters of altitude on the border of the municipalities of Santa Luc??a and San Bartolom?? de Tirajana and are highly influenced by the volcanic rock present.

For the development of the project and elaboration of the wines, Silva chose Jonatan Garc??a from Suertes del Marqu??s on Tenerife, one of the Canary Island?€?s top producers. Jonatan works the vineyards naturally, without the use of herbicides and systemic treatments. The wines are mostly single varieties made from different sectors existing on the property, each of which with ungrafted vines.
