Passion for Spanish wine



El Grifo Ariana 2017 Tinto

El Grifo, Lanzarote

This blend of Syrah and Listán Negro works like a happy marriage. The Rhône grape variety adds the needed structure without blurring Listán Negro’s wild, expressive character. Ripe red fruit (sour cherry, red plums) and wild herb aromas are followed by a tasty, lively palate with round tannins and the island’s distinctive exuberance. This very pleasant wine helps to shape a dynamic potential for reds in an island which is strongly linked to Malvasía. 16.5 points
