Overview

Masdache is named for a small village on the southeastern edge of La Geira in Lanzarote and is sourced from Ascensión Robayna’s vineyard, Moro la Virgen. This site is planted with 100+-year-old Listán Blanco, Malvasía, Diego and Listán Negro. This vineyard is the source for the Masdache Blanco as well as a small amount of Clarete named Mentidero. Both the red and white varieties are harvested together with have being pressed directly into 228L French oak barrels for fermentation and aging for 6 months, and the other half treated like their Tinto – whole cluster fermentation in amphorae and fermentation bins before aging in tank for 6 months. The two parts are then blended and settle for about a month before bottling.
