The red 2018 Ignios Orígenes Baboso Negro was produced with the grape known as Alfrocheiro Preto in Portugal, the reason why Pérez started this project. There's not much more than 10 hectares of this grape planted in the Canary Islands. 
 
It has a note of beeswax and honeycomb, raspberry leaf and dry rose petals with subdued minerality that, with time in the glass, turns into a very acute note of black tea, a little smoky.
 
It's quite original and characterful, with pungent flavours, some dusty tannins and unexpected fresh flavors like blood orange.
