Description

From a 1.5-ha single-vineyard, this Listán Negro comes off vines between 80-150 y/o. The soil is made up of a clay over volcanic rock, a unique terroir that produces unique wines.

A highly aromatic, and perfumed wine, it’s juicy, smoky, and quite intriguing. Fresh, intense aromas of concentrated dark fruits, smoky minerals, and dried flowers. Lively yet dense, with powerful cherry and floral flavours lifted by juicy acidity. Finishes on a spicy note, with subtle tannins melding into the wine's juicy fruit.

The vines grow in arid conditions, with nutrient poor, volcanic soils contributing to concentrated grapes full of minerality. These characteristics shine though, in the finished wine.

Give it a lot of time in the glass to open up!

The grapes come from old vines over 100 years old situated at an altitude of between 400 and 520 metres, orientated northeast. The cultivation of the vineyards is done using a unique multi corded system. Alcoholic fermentation in uncoated concrete cubes with 50% whole bunches. MLF in 45 hl Foudre and 500l barrels. Aged 12 months in 45hl foudre, and 500l barrels.

94 Points - "The single-vineyard Listán Negro 2018 La Solana was produced with the grapes of a centenary plot that tends to achieve high ripeness. It fermented with 50% full clusters and indigenous yeasts in concrete vats and matured in second-use 4,500-liter oak foudre and used 500-liter barriques for 10 months. This has a more reductive style, flinty and a bit ashy, but the palate is incredibly elegant and balanced, and feels like it's going to age nicely. It has to be the finest vintage for La Solana. 8,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2019." Luis Gutierrez (Parker Wine Advocate)

    Volcanic goodness

    Really impressed with this wine from Tenerife and it reminded us of much more expensive wines from Etna. Upon reading the back label, the 100 yo vines are grown on volcanic soils at altitude, so we weren't completely bonkers. Good wine,

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
