Suertes del Marqués Vidonia 2018

Tenerife, Canary Islands, SpainFrom Tenerife's volcanic soils, this organically farmed old-vine listán blanco was rooted at 350-450m. Vidonia is an old colloquial term for the historic whites of the island, traditionally dominated by listán blanco, and generally field blends. This mineral-driven blend was native fermented in neutral 500 L oak casks, before spending another 11 months rest there. Saline led, wild herbs, meadow grass, lemon rind, broken stones is braced with firm veins of flint, and bedded with a gently expansive palate. Riper and rounder than the 2017, this is drinking well now, and with life ahead.Tasted: 27 October 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
