Borja Pérez 2016 Vijariego Negro

47.00

The Vijariego Negro has the lowest yields and is the most rustic of all of Borja’s varieties. 2016 was the latest recorded harvest for this parcel. Maceration is in stainless steel tanks, press and then does malolactic fermentation and aging for 11 months in 600 L used French oak barrels. The result is a stunning, complex wine with beautiful acidity, earthy tannins, lively fruit, lush texture and a very long finish.

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.
