Gran Canaria is the second-most populous of the volcanic Canary Islands after Tenerife, hosting Las Palmas - 1 of the 2 capitals of the islands, along with Santa Cruz de Tenerife - and peaked by Pico de las Nieves at 1949m elevation. It’s considered desert due to its consistent warm temperatures and minimal rainfall, but there's also extreme variations in climate and landscape — desert, sure, but with unbelievable mountain heights, like the vineyard where Carmelo Peña Santana sources this 'Ikewen,' from Listán Negro grown at upwards of 1200 meters of altitude — that's above the cloud line. Notes of ruby fruit, wet clay, salinity, and a light smoke just emerging on the finish: as though Burgundy went rogue off the coast of Morocco.
