Tajinaste Blanco Seco
A blend of ninety percent Listán Blanco, with ten percent Albillo Criollo, added for a burst of acidity. A bit over half of the fruit is grown at 500 meters of altitude, with the rest grown at 250 meters altitude. Hand-harvested and carried to the winery in small boxes of fifteen kilograms to avoid damaging the berries.
As with almost all of the wines at Tajinaste, Agustín vinifies each parcel separately in inox tanks. One-fifth is aged in French barrels of two to three uses for two to three months. The wine is lightly fined with bentonite and is not filtered.
The nose is charming and easy-going, evocative of tropical fruits. The palate turns citrusy thanks to the addition of the Albillo Crillo. The finish is creamy and round, with a mineral edge that calls for the next sip.

White wine is made without the skin of the grape and produced through a method called alcohol fermentation. Also, the majority of white wines are lighter and have a crisper, more citrusy flavor compared to red.
It’s best to serve white wine in glasses with a larger bowl so that bold aromas and flavors emerge as they mingle with oxygen in the air. Many wine glass manufacturers have added a hint of green or blue feet to wine glasses as it flatters white wine and helps emphasize the separation between the glass and wine. Traditionally speaking, white wines are served before reds, while younger wines should be served before older vintages.
In addition, due to white wine’s aroma, acidity and ability to soften meat and deglaze cooking juices, white wines are often used in cooking. Sweet wine goes well with sweet and savory dishes to mitigate the heavy sugar and stimulate the fruitiness.
If you’re a sparkling wine lover at mealtime, you’re in luck, it can be taken any time during the meal because of its diversity. By choosing a sparkling wine, it allows the retention of the same wine from the beginning to the end of the meal.
Making it a must have in any household!
