It is no surprise: one of the most representative wines of the Island has been awarded again with a new prize, this time from Asociación Española de Escritores de Vino ( Wine Writers Association). This prize sets this amazing product from the Canary Islands in the right place and adds up to a surprising list with almost forty national and international medals.
The success could be explained by the technique with which this wine is made, – the bunch of grapes is fermented in a carbonic dioxide atmosphere-
Those who have tasted this mild and subtle wine with fruity bouquet before know that it is the best election to be drank alone as an aperitif or with a traditional menu from the Canary Islands. A fine combination with conejo en salmorejo (marinated rabbit), delicious with vieja con papas arrugadas (typical fish with potatoes) and with octopus, squids and every marine food salted with mojo (Canary Island’s sauce). It is a quality drink and the price of the bottle is around 12 and 14 euros in restaurants, the half if you buy it in a supermarket. However you can’t miss the chance to taste it.
Viña Norte Maceración Carbónica belongs to the Designation of Origin Tacoronte-Acentejo and it is one of the five denomination areas in Tenerife and the kind of grape (listán negro) that gives the cherry with violet edging colors, it is grown at the North coast of this Island.
