Viticulture is organic and the vines are trained in the traditional local braided cordon system, which lends its name, “Trenzado”, to the wine. Grapes are gently pressed and settled in stainless steel, the must is fermented with indigenous yeasts in a combination of 500-litre barrels and 2,500 and 4,500-litre oak foudres, it then matures on lees for nine months before bottling without fining or filtration. Wild, distinctive, and thirst-quenching  with beautiful texture this is an intriguing and beguiling wine.

Notes on the producer

Tenerife has a long and fascinating winemaking history, indigenous varieties such as Listán Negro and Blanco, Tintilla and Baboso Negro, can be found growing on 100 year-old own rooted vines. Jonatan Garcia from pioneering Tenerife bodega Suertes del Marqués is part of the growing breed of passionate Spanish producers working on the island, capitalising on the heritage vines, and allowing the volcanic soils to speak through his eloquent, mineral driven wines. Grapes come from the Orotova Valley, on the cooler north side of the island, which features volcanic clay soils and the steep slopes of the Pico del Teide volcano. Many are grown in a traditional trellising system called Cordon Trenzado - vine branches are plaited together and supported on stakes, and eventually grow into gnarly arms sometimes several meters in length. The estate has some incredibly old, low-yielding vines and produce wines that have freshness, balance, purity of fruit, minerality and an authentic terroir character. To us these are truly special wines, and they leave a lasting impression on everyone who tries them.
