Suertes del Marqués Vidonia 2019

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. This rings of the sea, with ample salinity and minerality leading crunchy green apple, wild herbs, lees, threaded with flint to a very long, saline finish. So much in youth, this will sharpen and focus and reward with time. A rare gem.Tasted: 07 March 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
