Borja Pérez 2016 Baboso Negro

49.00

The Baboso Negro is not a wine you will soon forget. Borja explains it is the most difficult variety to farm, with very low yields, a tendency to rot quickly because of its tight bunches and thin skins, but at the winery it is the most generous and easy to work with. With 40% whole bunches, it ferments in stainless steel tanks, light pressing and then ages for 12 months in used 600 L French oak barrels. On the nose we find peppery notes like the Listán Negro as well as abundant fruit, spices, beautiful acidity and a broad, dense texture. Borja told us he thinks this is the best vintage he has ever made of this wine.

About Borja Pérez

In the Northern appellation of Ycoden Daute Isora we find Borja Pérez González, a talented, young vigneron, native of La Guancha and ex-race car mechanic and firefighter. In 2011 Borja took over the family winery from his father and uncle and now meticulously farms a little over 7 hectares of his own vineyards and 2 hectares of parcels rented from local farmers. For Borja, the four main features of the 1000 hectares of vineyards in Tenerife are their volcanic soils, Atlantic climate, Alysian winds and original rootstocks. Borja works with four traditional varieties: the scarce Marmajuelo Blanco, Baboso Negro, Listán Negro and Vijariego, all single vineyards with extremely low yields.

The Vineyards

From La Vizcondesa Borja produces his Baboso Negro and Marmajuelo Blanco, planted in 1997. 1,5 HA with gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean, 450 m elevation and clay and limestone soils.

From Buenavista Norte, 305 m elevation, Borja produces the ungrafted Listán Negro from 40-year-old vines, and clay loam soils.

From Casa Canales, planted in 2006, at 770 m elevation, and with sandy loam soils with thick pebbles, Borja produces his extremely rare Vijariego Negro.
