Suertes del Marqués Vidonia 2017

Tenerife, Canary Islands, SpainFrom Tenerife's volcanic soils and organically farmed old-vine listán blanco at 350-450m, this mineral-driven blend was native fermented in neutral 500 L oak casks, before spending another 11 months rest there. Finely textured, with a beautiful salt wash livening herbal lees flicked with flint, lemon rind and broken stones. A bracing grip of salted pear brackets the sides of this moreish white. Not about fruit at all, but entirely about place and time. A stunning, singular wine now in youth, and with ages to go.Tasted: 22 January 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
