Borja Perez has developed a reputation as one of the best viticulturists in the Canaries. Situated in the richly biodiverse DO appellation Ycoden-Daute-Isora in Tenerife’s northwest, the volcanic, maritime vineyards here range from low coastal elevations to around 800m on average, with the most extreme sites climbing as high as 1,400m. Proximity to the Atlantic and its constant cooling winds and natural humidity conspire to produce a very exciting, yet challenging, climate for wine production.
This is a true volcanic wine at its best. Following a short period on the skins the wine is aged in a combination of used barrels and concrete. Artifice is powerful and balanced, expressing generous fruit alongside savory and mineral notes.
