About The Wine

This is the flagship white wine of Suertes del Marqués - breathtaking, electric white made from Listán Blanco (Palomino). This is the ultimate expression of Jonatan Garcia Lima's precious ancient volcanic vineyards.

When people talk about a sense of place in wine, this is what they are talking about. The bony soils of volcanic rock make these vines fight for their life. This eternal struggle (now more than 200 years in the making for some plots) intensifies the flavours and textures of the wine to a very high level.

The sense of liquid minerality in this wine is plpable. It's tight, flinty, saline and impossibly long through the finish. It's a wonderful drinking experience.

About Suertes del Marques

Suertes del Marqués is a family winery that has been producing wines since 2006 on the wind-swept island of Tenerife, part of the Canary Islands, off the Atlantic Coast of Africa.

Guardian of the many indigenous grape varieties, owner/winemaker Jonatan Garcia Lima is passionate about maintaining local winemaking traditions (check out their 'trenzado' trellising), minimal sulphur usage and homeopathic vineyard treatments.

Garcia Lima is part of a small, revolutionary contingent of vignerons that are making it their mission to consolidate and care for the ancient vines on the island. These charming naturally produced wines speak of some wild, untamed terroir and are unlike anything else you will find in Spain or anywhere.

From The Producer

From three parcels of our state, El Barranco, La Solana and El Ciruelo, located between 350 meters and 520 meters above sea level, with volcanic soils, here we grow ungrafted white varieties with more than a century old.

As Vidonia they were known in the seventeenth century Tenerife wines produced in the north of the island with white varieties (except Malvasia), coinciding with the period of maximum splendor of the wine trade in the Canaries. Vidonia wines were usually exported to the West Indies and United Kingdom.

Wine Advocate

(On the 2018 vintage) "The estate 2018 Vidonia could possibly be the best vintage so far of their top white, which was produced with Listán Blanco (a.k.a. Palomino) grapes from the central part of the slope, centenary vines pruned in cordón trenzado at 350 to 550 meters in altitude. This wine has a lot more finesse than the Trenzado. The must fermented in used 500-liter oak barrels with indigenous yeasts, where it matured for 11 months. It has 0.6% less alcohol than the 2017 and very good acidity and freshness. It feels austere and closed, very serious, insinuating and subtle. The palate is sharp and electric, with a sensation of liquid stones, beautifully textured and more about the soils than fruit. This has a very elegant profile that's terribly balanced and harmonious, with focused, symmetric and precise flavors, and it's medium-bodied with everything truly integrated. Awesome!!" - Luis Guitiérrez (The Wine Advocate)
