The Character

Tasting Notes "Orange-gold. Orange marmalade, candied flowers and gingerbread on the nose. Sappy, sweet orchard fruit and citrus flavors are buffered by tangy acidity, with the spicy note repeating. Deeply pitched but light on its feet, finishing with very good breadth and clarity. This would be great with salty sheep's milk cheeses. " 92. Josh Raynolds, Vinous

Brand Story

Owned and run by winemaker Ignacio Valdera, Bermejos is on the easternmost island of Lanzarote. Only 125km from the African coast, conditions here are extreme. A volcanic explosion that lasted from 1730-1736 covered the entire island in lava and ash 3-5 meters deep. Consequently, each vine must be planted in a hole or hoyo that breaks through that infertile volcanic crust of petrified lava to the organic matter that can nourish it. The wind, which acts as a natural fungicide, is so ferocious that each hoyo is surrounded by rock walls for protection. Yields are miniscule (16 hL/ha). All vineyard work is done by hand.
