The wine

Medianías is the name given to the area in the Orotava Valley comprised of land lying at an altitude of around 600 metres. There, young and century-old vines of indigenous varieties sink their roots into the island of Tenerife's volcanic soils: Listán Negro, Vijariego Negro and Tintilla are distributed among trellises and braided cordons. The 'trenzado' is a trellis system which consists of braiding the vine's branches together and fascinates all viticulture enthusiasts; despite assuring good yields, it requires many hours of hard work; nevertheless, at Suertes del Marqués they remain totally convinced that tradition is a fundamental pillar of their work philosophy.

All vineyard tasks are carried out manually and following organic principles; diseases are only treated with natural products, with as little synthetic interference as possible. Once in the winery, the wine ferments through native yeasts and racking is limited to the essential minimum. The wines ferment and mature in concrete vats and old barrels, which don't have an effect on the wine. Filtration processes aren't employed and a small amount of sulphur is used only at bottling time.

After an entire process when the grape has been the absolute protagonist, the Medianías comes over as an honest Atlantic red which conveys us to its original landscape with every sip. After appearing a low-density, lovely ruby colour, aromas of volcanic earth and ash emerge, as well as wild meadows and red fruit. On the palate it's silky and fresh, with smokiness enveloping the lively, acidic fruit that's reminiscent of Morello cherries, with glimmers of eucalyptus, cloves and white pepper in the background. Intense and delicate at the same time, it flows like lava, and refreshes like the wind.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The 2019 Medianías aims for some more complexity than the 7 Fuentes (which is not easy!), mixing grapes from three ancient vineyards, La Habanera, Medianías and Fortaceros. It fermented in concrete tanks with 20% full clusters and indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured in a combination of 2,500-liter oak foudre and concrete vats for nine months. Truth is, this surprised me with a spectacular nose, perfumed, elegant and serious. It has a juicy palate and very fine tannins. It has some spicy notes on the finish. 4,100 bottles were filled in August 2020.
