Spend a day with me as a 30-something wine merchant writing about wines from islands...
Last summer I was fortunate enough to be invited to a bit of a piss up on Gran Canaria. Unfortunately this was not the traditional Great British jaunt that I had always dreamt of growing up, as the strip was no where to be seen. Instead, several of London's most esteemed wine personalities, and yours truly, were whisked up into the mountains for a day of tasting followed by a second day of tasting without spitting. Sometimes life is hard. This was of course the launch party for Bodegas Tameran, the project from ex-Footballer David Silva on his native island. They're back with the 2021's, the second release, kicking goals. See what I did there? We tasted these from barrel last year, and things were already looking extremely thirst quenching. Everyone is in for a treat! Fine white wine is obviously not the first drink one will think about when picturing alcohol consumption on Gran Canaria, which is totally fine. It's an added bonus. And whilst you could definitely consume these from an ice filled tumbler equipped with straw and paper umbrella I personally would recommend cracking out the "nice" glassware and skipping said ice. We have received a limited yet generous allocation of everything this time. I'm stoked. Do the right thing for yourself right here.
Now, back to the cricket.
