Vega de Yuco
Winemaker – Tomas Mesa
Vega De Yuco winery was established in 1997 and sits in the valley between Masdache and Montaña Blanca. Their aim is to produce fine wine, which expresses both quality and personality by combining traditional methods, with the newest technology. Their winery was revolutionised on the introduction of the Yaiza brand, and the Island’s now famous blue bottle in the early 2000’s.
Their winemaker and enologist, Tomas Mesa, is from a well-known family of winemakers in Tenerife. Engulfed in the world of wine from a young age, he now finds himself as one of the top viticulturists and winemakers in the Canary Islands.
Violet tints with a ruby hue.
On the nose it is elegant and varietal. The marked personality of the Listán Negro is fused with certain notes of toasted oak wood, red berries, toffee and coffee.
Fresh, with a gentle palate, there is a reminiscence of roasted notes from the barrels combined with dark fruits and silky tannins.
Superb with game, a hearty stew or barbecued ribs.
