Western Wonder: Teneguia White Wine From La Palma

La Palma's excellent Teneguía white wine La Palma's excellent Teneguía white wine

This excellent La Palma dry white is superb value and rivals any Spanish white you can buy for the price in Gran Canaria's supermarkets.

Teneguía Blanco is made from a hotchpotch of local grape varieties from all over La Palma. It's the cheapie version of the winery's excellent La Gota but a great value wine in its own right. 

The 2014 vintage is pale straw yellow colour with a fruity nose and hints of green apple, fennel and hay. Rich in the mouth but dry. Has a long, floral aftertaste. 

Seriously good for the price of 5-6 euros. This rivals any Spanish white wine on the shelves at the same price in Gran Canaria. 

Alex says: Wines from the western Canary Islands of La Palma, El Hierro and La Gomera tend to be excellent value because they don't have the cachet of Lanzarote whites or the big domestic market of Tenerife and Gran Canaria. 

Teneguía Blanco sells in Alcampo and El Corte Ingles in Gran Canaria.
