Lanzarote is paradise for wine lovers. Old autochthonous vines on lava soils, with Atlantic influences but the majority of the wine was mainly cheap tourist wines. Rayco Fernández, as a distributor based in Gran Canaria, had the same feeling. He decided to do something about it. With a number of like-minded friends, he decided to make real terroir wine on the island. And so it happened and with Puro Rofe extremely beautiful wines have now been made in an extreme landscape. The international wine press is also full of praise for the entire series, all of which score well above 90/100 points.

The Mentidero is the most special and unique of all Rofe wines. The wine is bottled as a field blend, so in this case a mixture of white and red grape varieties. Hence, this is often referred to as a "clarete"; in 2020 the wine is a bit lighter and is qualified as white wine. Wild stuff! Daily pressing of the grapes 50% in oak barrel, 50% in stainless steel. Red grapes are not de-stemmed. Spontaneous fermentation and then élevage of about 6 months.

The Mentidero Masdache is logically seen as the darkest of the white wines, due to the presence of some red Listán negro. Very complex on the nose with green herbs, soft aromas of red berries, fennel and anise. Floral nuances after shaking. Complex and mineral in the mouth. Dry and salty finish.

FACT: The Puro Rofe wine are all wines that come from a specific area/place(s) of which only a handful of bottles are always made.
