Sensational red from Tenerife (yes Tenerife) No excess baggage, just pure unadulterated crunchy red fruit goodness. Unique yes, but more than that, truly delicious with it.

 

 

Grape:  Listan Negro

Producer:  Suertes del Marques

Region: Tenerife, Spain
Size:  75cl  
ABV:  13%

 

Suertes del Marques are probably the most well regarded producer of quality wines on the island of Tenerife. This is made predominantly from Listan Negro which is a local grape variety along with Tintilla (Trousseau in the Jura region of France) Lingering white pepper spice provides a lovely savoury edge to the crunchy bright red fruits (think fresh crushed raspberrys, redcurrants, that sort of thing) It is so incredibly fresh tasting, a wine for when you have a real thirst on. Drink over the next couple of years for maximum pleasure.

Critics Musings

Richard Hemming for Jancis Robinsons Purple Pages

Sparky and smoky - real goût de terroir here. Has the earthy smokiness of good Pinot Noir. This is precisely the kind of wine that deserves a wider audience.  17 points.
