Malvasía Volcánica is a crossing of two other Canary Island grapes; Malvasía Aromática and Marmajuelo. It is a small, delicate grape that is exclusively cultivated on these volcanic islands. True to its volcanic name, this wine is brimming with minerality. It has a distinctive, struck match aroma on the nose that intertwines with opulent stone fruits, citrus acidity and a spicy, ginger kick.The acidity and citrus notes are mouthwatering and moreish, the finish is like sea spray. This is a wine that leaves you wanting to drink more and more.

'Such intensity and power, with real complexity' - Jamie Goode

Jamies Goode -

This is slightly honeyed with lime and even a touch of melon. Very fine and bright with a lovely acid line, showing perfect integration. There’s real definition here. So precise and mineral.

Ferran Centelles - Jancis

100% Malvasía Volcánica. Vineyards at 600 m elevation. Ungrafted vines. Alcoholic fermentation in Stockinger oak foudres of 2,500 litres. The malolactic conversion was blocked. Aged on its lees in oak barrels of 500 litres for 11 months. 3,200 bottles produced. 2021 was a small vintage with yields 40% lower than the average. White flowers, peach, touch of gunflint. High acidity and quite sweet. Great intensity. Salty and deep. Very expressive.

About Bodegas Tamerán

'This estate is on its way to becoming a cult bodega.' - Ferran Centelles,

Tamerán is a project that celebrates the unique growing conditions, history and grape varieties of the Canary Islands. Founded in 2019, this winery is the joint passion of famed footballer - and Canary Island native - David Silva, and the acclaimed Tenerife winemaker Jonatan Garcia of Suertes del Marques. 

"It all started when David contacted me by Twitter because he was drinking El Ciruelo 2016, and he was impressed. He said, congratulations, it is great that the wines from the Canary Islands are so good now. So we started a friendship. Six months later we were talking about making something together" - Jonatan Garcia

Jonatan and David formed a fast friendship based on their mutual love of wine and the unique terroir of this Volcanic Island region. Bodegas Tamerán is a remarkable place. The vineyards are planted with local varieties including Verdello, Marmajuelo, Baboso Blanco, Vijariego Blanco and Malvasía Volcánica. Each wine showcases a different variety, giving an honest - and delicious - expression of this fabulous terroir.

The winery is located between 600 and 700 metres above sea level, on south-facing slopes, with sandy volcanic soils. The idea is to produce refreshing, mineral wines which speak to the unique microclimate, volcanic soils and native grapes of the island. They have gotten off to a flying start, and we have been so impressed by each of their unique, single-variety bottlings.
