Trenzado Suertes del Marques
This is a very exciting wine from Tenerife. Made from 90 year old vines on the slopes of an active volcano Mount Teide. Obviously the soil is very volcanic and minerally, and you can honestly taste it in the wine, along with intensely spicy black pepper and red fruit. The nose is superb, really complex with aromas of freshly cracked peppercorns, violets and wet stones. The palate is medium bodied and soft with a wonderful pumice stone, chalky finish.
