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.

Vidonia, his top white from old-vine Listán Blanco, is sometimes compared to good Burgundy. It's wonderfully complex, with a matchstick nose alongside citrus, peach and nuts. It has a rounded mouthfeel balanced by lively acidity, fine citrus fruit and a hint of wax - a truly singular wine.

 

About Suertes del Marques

Tenerife has a long and fascinating winemaking history, indigenous varieties such as Listan Negro, Tintilla and Baboso Negro, can be found growing on 100 year-old vines. Many of these older vines are trained in unique braided cordons known locally as cordon trenzado.

Suertes source their grapes from the Orotova Valley, on the cooler north side of the island, which features volcanic clay soils and steep slopes of the Pico del Teide volcano. 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.
