Trenzado Suertes del Marqués

31.00

Trenzado takes its name from a local vine training method called Cordon Trenzado, in which the branches of the vine are almost braided together and supported on stakes (as pictured on the label).

Tenerife has a long and fascinating winemaking history, indigenous varieties such as Listán Negro and Blanco, Tintilla and Baboso Negro. Many vineyards are made up of 100 year-old+ ungrafted vines. Jonatan Garcia runs the family winery that is located in the Orotava Valley on the north side of the island. Many are grown in a traditional trellising system called Cordon Trenzado – vine branches are braided together and supported on stakes, and eventually grow into gnarly arms sometimes several meters in length. 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.

A beautiful wine, perfect for the seasoned Chardonnay drinker, seeking to try something a different.

Pair it with  grilled fish dishes, shellfish and crustaceans; also well paired with stewed white meats
