Palo Blanco | Envínate

From 100 year old vines in the Valle de la Orotava, on the northern side of the island. The combination of altitude, climate and volcanic soils create a wine with extraordinary character and texture; this is what winemaker Roberto refers to as a ‘vertical wine’. Saline, citrus, herbal, mineral… a wine that demands an unending list of adjectives.
