Bodegas Ignios is without a doubt the top bodega on Tenerife. Very interesting wines are made on this Canary Island. Higher vineyards and the Atlantic Ocean provide healthy, fresh wines. The aim of the young winery Ignios is to emphasize the value of the Canarian indigenous varieties and the Marmajuelo is such a grape and it also benefits even more from the height (due coolness) of this aromatic wine.

The single vineyard with Marmajuelo grapes is fermented in three 500-liter oak barrels. This oak fermentation provides some extra complexity, because the grape can be very aromatic by nature. The wine matures in the barrels with the lees for 12 months, after which (only) 2300 bottles are bottled.

The nose is fragrant with aromatic herbs, white fruit, balsamic vinegar, almond blossom and honey. In the nose, the wine is ointment, perfumed, with a refreshing acidity. and a strong personality. The Ignios Marmajuelo is an excellent accompaniment to seafood, fish, rice and also great with spicy food such as Thais.

Vineyard for 2016 Bodegas Ignios Orígenes Marmajuelo

Bodegas Ignios is one of the best bodegas on Tenerife, part of the Canary Islands. Due to the high location of the vineyards and the salty sea air of the Atlantic Ocean, the wines have the perfect opportunity to be healthy and fresh. The soil of this region is composed of sandy loam and thanks to its east-western orientation, the sun's rays reach it almost all day long, amplified by the high altitude and light influence of the trade wins.

Their grapes are fermented in stainless steal and ages in 500 or 600 liter barrels for a whole year. In late 2016, about 3000 unfiltered bottles were filled.
