Canary Islands Wines: La Palma's La Gota

La Palma's excellent La Gota white wine La Palma's excellent La Gota white wine

This is one of the best value Canarian white wines and is easy to find in Gran Canaria's supermarkets.

La Gota is a dry white wine made from local grape varieties grown in the volcanic soils of the south of La Palma island. It's a light straw colour with well balanced acidity and hints of tropical fruit. Like all good Canarian wines it has  long, intense finish. Drink La Gota on its own or along with seafood and pasta.

With no name on the bottle, look out for the distinctive black drop on the label. It's sold in Hiperdino supermarkets at about eight euros a bottle ( a bit more in the resorts).

This is the winery website. It also sells La Palma sea salt flavoured with red wine. Great for jazzing up stews.
