Tenerife, Canary Islands
Juicy and refreshing with intense aromas of red fruit, wet earth and spice. This is a fun unfiltered volcanic wine that can also be served chilled.
Suertes 'Cool' is a play on Nat Cool. Nat Cool is naturally “cool and funky”. It represents an innovative concept initiated by Niepoort, in which various producers came together to create light and easy-to-drink wines. The Nat Cool wines are made by a number of producers in different regions who are making light, fresh wines that are bottled without fining, filtration and low so2 added. Always in a litre bottle.
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.
