"The 2020 Táganan Parcela Margalagua is a wine that always showcases the volcanic soils and the cooler Atlantic climate from the northeast corner of Tenerife, where there are red basalt soils, rather than the more usual black, and some iron in the soil provides the wine's color. They reckon the iron also provides finer tannins. The nose is always a lot more floral, delicate and all about finesse, to which iron should certainly help. It's also volcanic and spicy, but the dominant note is floral. The palate is medium-bodied and incredibly elegant, with a tasty and faint saltiness, following the line of the 2016, perhaps with a tad more precision. They use 10% of white grapes, something they started in 2015. 2020 was again very dry and even lower yielding, but the wine kept a moderate 12% alcohol, lower pH and higher acidity, which means more freshness. It has an amazing nose, floral, perfumed and showy but extremely elegant; it's more floral and perfumed than the 2019, subtler and more Burgundian and less volcanic. Very defined, clean and precise. The finest Margalagua they have ever produced, with the elegance of the 2018 but one step up in depth, elegance and layers. Only 1,500 bottles were filled in December 2021. Drink: 2022-2030."

"I tasted the 2019s and 2020s from Envínate in the Canary Islands, where they produced wines from different zones in Tenerife, in the north in Taganana, La Orotava and now also in Tacoronte-Acentejo, and in the south in Santiago del Teide. Both vintages were warm and dry, but 2020 is clearly superior for the white wines. Envínate is planning to build a brand-new winery from scratch, but the project will take a couple of years, so the objective is to vinify the 2023 vintage there. In Tenerife, they produce 100,000 bottles (in 2021), but some vintages are shorter, like 2020 when they produced 85,000 bottles. Their idea is to produce a grand total of 200,000 bottles between Canary Islands, Galicia and the Mediterranean."
