La Santa de Ursula is a new bottling from the northeast coast of Tenerife in an area called La Carujera, part of the Tacoronte-Acentejo appellation. It’s a blend of three parcels of 100+ year old vines planted on sandy clay over red basalt bedrock, situated between 350m and 650m above sea level. The blend is 48% Negramoll, 50% Listán Negro, and 2% Listán Blanco, which are vinified partially with whole clusters in cement and aged in small neutral oak barrels. Bottling is without fining or filtration, and only a small addition of sulfur.

Other Reviews....
The impressive 2021 La Santa de Úrsula has a floral, peppery and herbal nose and an elegant and fresh palate, with a sensation of harmony and balance. It has very fine tannins and a long, clean and ethereal sensation in the finish. 9,700 bottles and 100 magnums produced. It was bottled in July 2022. Drink 2023 - 2029.

Beautiful nose full of white pepper funk, grapefruit, wild raspberries, chalk and mineral. On the palate, this is ethereal and lively but super tense with a bit more verticality than the equally attractive, funky but linear Táganan. Textured, mineral and wild finish that develops in the finish. Goes on and on. Delicious and so drinkable now, but this can age, for a decade, too, if not more.
