LAS SUERTES 2019 - SUERTES DEL MARQUÉS

0,75 L Red Wine / Spain / Canary islands / Valle de la Orotava DO / 13 % vol

"It is incredibly stylish (...) the texture is just incredible, nuanced and complex" R. Parker
El Ciruelo is one of the greatest volcanic wines in the world. This wine is a blend of Listán Negro as the main variety and a small percentage of Listán Blanco. Listán Negro is a native variety that is found only on the Canary Islands. However, Listán Blanco is the name that was given to it on the islands. Usually it is called Palomino, a very common variety in Jerez (Sherry). The grapes come from a small plot of 0.75 hectares of old vines that are over 90 years old at an altitude of 500 metres on a soil of volcanic rock under a cover of native vegetation. The plot, El Ciruelo, takes its name from the trees planted in the vineyards, which are plums. The nose is delicate, revealing very aromatic floral, peony and liquorice notes, mixed with beautiful aromas of fresh red fruit and spices. On the palate, the wine is correct, with good minerality. The texture is dense but correct, with soft but very present tannins. The finish is persistent, revealing beautiful bitter tastes. The length is endless and has rare balance. Only a few lucky ones can afford one of the 4000 bottles produced every year.

SUERTES DEL MARQUES

The estate was created in 2006, it was created by Jonatan Garcia Lima and Roberto Santana and is located on the island of Tenerife (Canary Islands), in the heart of the Orotava Valley appellation, a prestigious wine-growing area. The 9-hectare vineyard is made up of century-old vines planted in braided cord (an endogenous size of the region), is located between 350 and 700 meters above sea level on the volcanic slopes of the north of the island. The main part of the estate is made up of centuries-old vines of Listán Negro and Listán Blanco. The rest of the vineyard is made up of indigenous grape varieties (Castellana, Tintilla, Baboso Negro, Albillo). Today there are 21 plots identified according to the nature of their soils, their orientations, their altitudes and their climates. Each plot is vinified separately to give a unique personality to each of the cuvées. The work of the vines is carried out manually in respect and tradition in order to obtain a clean and healthy harvest. The vinification is done in a natural way without chemical intervention or additives. The wines are of a rare purity, one should not miss these wonders typified by the beauty of their terroirs.
