Suertes del Marqués Vidonia 2020

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. The expansive palate is amply lashed with marine salinity, imbuing lees, green apple, meadow grass, wild herbs, lemon peel through a lengthy, saline finish.Tasted: 13 May 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
