Patricia Perdomo is based in Garafia, in the northern part of La Palma, where she organically farms a single hectare vineyard in the region of Briesta that is composed of a number of indigenous grape varieties: Listan Prieto, Listan Negro, Negramoll, and others. This is a truly special place: surrounded by Canarian pines, planted on ancient terraces, the vines are 1200m above the sea and typically above the cloud line. El Cantaro, is the only wine she produces, a blend of all of the varieties from the plot cofermented in the ancient method of the area. About 80% of the grapes are destemmed, ferment in open top vessels for about five days before resting in stainless steel for roughly a year. This shows savory notes of tea, smoke, stone and tiny red berries on the nose, while the palate is beautifully balanced, with delicate, grainy tannins around notes of macerated raspberries and cranberries and pomegranate layered on deep and dense volcanic minerality.
