Juan Jesus is a proud native of Tenerife and the fourth generation of growers in the island. During the twenty-five years that he’s overseen Bodegas Viñátigo, he has considerably increased its holdings, planting varieties that he and his team recuperated. One hundred per cent Gual, which Jesus vinifies as if they were red grapes (in the “ancestral” style). Macerated for three weeks on the skins; the extended maceration time results in a beguilingly aromatic wine. Gual is a light-colored grape, so the wine’s color is not deep orange the way other wines made in this style can be. Vinified and aged in a cement egg.
