The wine

A wine brimming with Tenerife character thanks to the personality of the local varieties and unique volcanic soils of the Canary Islands. Suertes del Marqués 7 Fuentes offers a unique aromatic profile, very characteristic of the region. A wonderful wine at a very affordable price.

What does this wine taste like?

An open and expressive wine with aromas of red fruits. Juicy and accessible, but also complex and fresh. If you are not used to the interesting and revealing aromas of volcanic ash so typical of Orotava Valley wines, it is best to let it aerate a moment before enjoying this magnificent and charming jewel of a wine.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

This red is a village wine from La Orotava. The 2019 7 Fuentes was produced with Listán Negro grapes with some 10% Castellana Negra from up to 25 different vineyards, mostly from the center and east of the valley where the grapes are mostly red, with vines ranging between 10 and 200 years old at altitudes of 300 to 700 meters on different soils, all volcanic but with more or less clay, silt and sand. It fermented with some 10% full clusters in concrete with indigenous yeasts and matured for six months, 60% in concrete and 40% of the volume in used 500-liter oak barrels, then blended and kept in stainless steel for a further five months. It has moderate alcohol, 12.6%, and mellow acidity. It showcases the minerality of the Orotava reds, with telltale aromas of volcanic ash, black peppercorns and dry roses. It has complexity that goes beyond an entry-level red. This is a wine that overdelivers for the price asked, and it is highly recommended. To buy by the case. 42,000 bottles were produced. It was bottled in May 2021; there are five different 6,300-liter lots from the same blend.
