Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Suertes del Marqués El Esquilón is a D.O. Valle de la Orotava red wine produced by Suertes del Marqués.

The Listán Negro grapes come from the El Esquilón vineyard and are 80 years old, while the Tintilla is about fifteen. The 1.2 hectare vineyard faces northwards and is 550 metres above sea level. Although the soil has low yields due to its high levels of volcanic rock, the wines are rather intense and complex.

The grapes are destemmed without being crushed. They later ferment on their autochthonous lees for 14 days with manual batonages, reaching a temperature of 28ºC. Following a 10-day-long post-fermentation maceration, the wine is devatted in French oak (Allier and Nevers) barrels, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation on its lees. It later ages for ten months, and is finally bottled without being filtered. Yearly production of this wine is limited by the low yields of the vineyard.

Since the very beginning in 2006, this small and family-run winery has opted for the native varieties of the area and the use of traditional training methods of Valle de la Orotava, thus preserving the rich winegrowing heritage of this region, which goes back five centuries. Valle de la Orotava is considered the origin of the vineyards on the island of Tenerife. Today, a large part of the identity of the wines from Suertes del Marqués, both whites and reds, are based on the unique expression of the native variety Listán.

Tenerife, with an area of 2,034km2, is the largest and most populous of the Canary Islands, known internationally as the “island of eternal spring”. This island also unites the most wine DOs, among them the DO Valle de la Orotava, where today the identity of its wines, whites and reds, are based on the particular and unique character of the native Listán grape variety.
