Suertes del Marqués Vidonia 2021

Tenerife, Canary Islands, SpainFrom Tenerife's volcanic soils, this organically farmed old-vine listán blanco was rooted at 350-550m. 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 500L casks and 25hL foudre before spending another 11 months rest there. A flinty reduction is woven throughout this vintage, mingling with subtle quince, mirabelle plum, green apple, verbena, and wild meadow herbs. The finish is long and saline. There is nothing but volcanic that this wine could be.Tasted: 26 January 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
