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.

This charged, fuzzy/tangy, textural white takes its name from a trellis system unique to the Canary Islands and known locally as el cordón trenzado (the braided cord). This type of trellising results in a plaited cordon with several of a single vine’s branches braided together. It’s an old-vine blend of Listán Blanco from the high altitude, north-facing vineyards of Esquilón and La Piñer, with a young vine vidueño (field blend) from La Florida, where Gual, Marmajuelo, Torrontes, Albillo Criollo, Vijariego Blanco and Verdelho populate the vineyard.

All the grapes are hand-harvested, and the wine is fermented (with a small portion left on skins) and aged in large oak ovals for nine months on lees before bottling.
