Suertes is located on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands at the northern end in the Valle de La Orotova. The family have been farming vines for over 40 years but Suertes del Marques began in 2006. Owner Jonatan Garcia Lima runs the property and is part of a growing breed of intensely passionate young Spanish producers capitalising on the heritage vines and the volcanic soils to speak through his eloquent, mineral driven wines. Recently he has started working with talented young winemaker Luis Seabra. The estate has some incredibly old, low-yielding vines that produces wines with freshness, balance, purity of fruit, minerality and authentic terroir character.

Tasting Note:
El Esquilón is a single vineyard bottling of Listan Negro coming off 100 year old vines in the Canary Islands, planted about 500 metres above sea level. It’s fermented as whole bunches in concrete and then aged in old oak for a year. The site produces wines that are typically more elegant and add a volcanic minimality to the wine. The older vines offer more structure, depth and tannin giving the wine the ability to age gracefully if you chose to put it down for a rest. Bright and energetic, the 2019 is beautifully ripe, with fine purity and enticing depth. It’s elegance and effortless flow are matched by assertive structure and intensely fresh and bold flavours culminating in a lingering, lengthy and layered close.
