Los Bermejos Diego Seco 2021

Crazy Good Canary Island White: Los Bermejos Diego Seco

The 2021 Los Bermejos Diego Seco is one of the most fascinating white wines I've tasted this year. A wine that tastes like a top-flight Albarino crossed with a stunning Sauvignon Blanc, it is a must-try for white wine adventurers.

Whenever I drink a Canary Island wine, I wonder to myself why anyone decided to plant grapes on these wind-swept, volcanic lands. Then I take a smell and a sip, and I quit asking questions. Wines like this one are proof positive why some of the most exciting Spanish wines produced today come from this island chain off the cost of Northwestern Africa.

You are just going to have to trust me when I say you have probably never had a white wine quite like this. The extreme growing conditions on the island of Lanzarote create an extremely delicious and world-class white wine. Click here to view some pictures of the growing conditions of these windy, volcanic-crusted vineyards. Again, why did anyone decide to plant vines here? It looks like the surface of another planet...

I'll tell you why, because these difficult conditions and infertile soils yield delicious and distinctive wines. Yields are incredibly low, all of the work is done by hand, and Ignacio Valdera's Diego vineyards are certified organic. The resulting wine is truly unique, but it is not too far outside of your all's comfort zones.

If you've enjoyed Albarino and/or Sancerre, I am confident you will love this exciting white wine. Full of energy and vigor, it exudes exotic notes of tangerine, pineapple, lemon, white flowers, and salty minerality. Weighty yet fresh on the palate, it is invigorating and concentrated on the palate with a 30+ second finish.

There's not much left to say other than "enjoy the ride" this wine takes you on. Serve this wonderful white with crab cakes and fresh green veggies or just pull the cork and enjoy with a good friend and a great conversation. Cheers to happy drinking and eating in the AVL!
