Product Description
Details

Produced by Suertes del MarquésSuertes del Marqués El Ciruelo is a first-class Spanish red wine produced in the DO Valle de la Orotava, Tenerife.

Made mostly from Listán Negro (aka Mission and Tinta País), with a droplet of Listán Blanco (aka Palomino), both varieties come from El Ciruelo, a single vineyard of less than 1 hectare located at an altitude of 500 metres above sea level.

Harvested by hand, the grapes were first macerated with 80% clusters for 20 to 28 days. Then they were fermented in concrete tanks with indigenous yeasts. After that, this red wine from Valle de la Orotava was transferred into used French oak barrels, where it was aged on lees for 11 months. Suertes del Marqués El Ciruelo 2018 was bottled unfined, so it may contain some sediment.

Decant this red wine from Tenerife 20 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine Suertes del Marqués El Ciruelo is cherry red, with a violet tinge.

Nose

Though restrained and not overtly expressive at this moment, this blend of Listán Negro and Listán Blanco has the potential to become a world-class red wine. Amazingly mineral, with a deep volcanic note reminiscent of the best Etna rosso wines, some herbal and bitter hints, and an intimation of red fruit.

Palate

The texture of this wine from Suertes del Marqués is simply outstanding. The wine has some filigree tannins, a hair-rising acidity and some enthralling chalky and ashy suggestions. Formidable tension, paired with a lifted, weightless mouthfeel and a complex, ever-evolving finish. 

Our personal opinion

The marvelous Suertes del Marqués El Ciruelo 2018 proves that Tenerife is a world-class wine producing region.
