Overview

Bimbache Blanco is sourced primarily from vineyards in the north and northeastern part of the island of La Hierro. Like the Tinto, these are from vineyards with a wide range of varieties which include Verijadiego Blanco (the name for Diego on El Hierro), Listán Blanco, Babosa Blanco, Gual, Pedro Ximénez. The main variety in the Blanco is Verijadiego/Diego with smaller percentages of everything else. Following a gentle whole-cluster pressing, the wine ferments by indigenous yeasts in tank then is aged in tank, Stockinger foudre, and a few French oak barrels which develop flor.
