Suertes del Marqués

Vidonia Valle de la Orotava Listan Blanco Cordon Trenzando 2018

Young Palomino from Tenerife. I know these wines are meant to be aged, but I enjoyed this 2018 bottle. It did not have the oxidation noted by many reviewers, but instead was a tropical-flavored wine with notes of pineapple and other fruits, that after being open for at least 30 minutes had a finish of vanilla and cream. Quite complex and enjoyable, but more of a Summer wine than one appropriate for dinner. Great for picnics. I’ll need to try an aged bottle some day to understand this wine. — 5 days ago

Envinate

Táganan Vinos Atlánticos White Blend 2019

A blend of Listán Blanco (Palomino) and several other native varieties - Malvasía, Forastera, Marmajuelo, Albillo Criollo, Vijariego Blanco and Gual – from various parcels in the village of Taganana in the north of Tenerife, each plot vinified separately. Fermented in concrete open vats (with short skin-macerations) and partially aged in steel (40%) and 228 and 600-liter oak barrels (60%) for about 8 months. Sea breeze, bitter orange and lightly oxidized notes on the nose. Complex, mineral, precise. Nice saltiness, long finish — a month ago

Benje Tenerife Tinto 2018

Alder Yarrow
9.3

Quite reduced at first, with lots of struck match and brimstone funk, but with some air this blossomed into a crunchy lean boysenberry and sour cherry medley mixed with chopped herbs and deeply stony minerality. Great acidity. Taste the volcano mateys! From the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands of Spain, this mostly Listan Prieto (aka Mission or Pais) with a little of Tintillo, red wine is light on the palate and quite refreshing. Sulfur is added only at bottling, otherwise this juice is simply put into old barrels to do its thing. — 22 days ago

Táganan Vinos Atlánticos Red Blend 2018

2020 fall. This was really lovely - open, bright, juicy. I liked it more than the Migan (or at least that bottle of Migan, at that time...) — a month ago
