100% Listan Blanco
Vidonia is truly and exceptional wine: world class. We recommend this for anyone who enjoys Loire and Burgundy whites...and of course to anyone who is mad for Volcanic wine, like we are. Complex, smokey, delicate and mineral. This wine builds momentum with more time in the 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.
