Ignios Artifice Listan Blanco de Canarias 2014

Ignios Artifice Listan Blanco de Canarias 750ML 2014   
Sku: 000000040295

The Artifice white is 100% Listan Blanco. More widely known as Palomino, it is a relatively neutral grape used primarily for sherry making. Perez ferments and ages the wine in 500-L french barrique, imported from Burgundy, where it spends seven months on the lees. He is known for intervening as little as possible in the production of his wines. Very little, if any, sulphur is used and the wines are rarely fined or filtered.

Pale gold in color. The nose is all stone fruit and orchard blossoms with just a touch of smoking flint. It is rustic, open-knit, and thoroughly inviting. Peach nectar, ripe golden pear, and fresh honeydew open up in the glass with good density and a soft, silky texture. The expansive palate is balanced against a distinctly mineral-focused finish, reminiscent of ocean spray. Its a unique and friendly, full-bodied white that manages to hint at indulgence and remain utterly refreshing. Consider decanting, as I found my second pass at the bottle a good deal more expressive than when I first pulled the cork.
