This is a blend of mainly Listan Blanco blended with a 'vidueno', or field blend, where native grapes such as Gual, Marmajuelo, Babaso Blanco, Albillo Criollo, Vijariego Blanco and Verdello populate the vineyard. The cuvee name is derived from the trellis system unique to the Canary Islands: 'el cordon trenzado' (the braided cord), a multiple cordon with a number of the vine's branches braided together. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel and used 500L oak barrels, plus a touch of large format new oak. The wine is vibrant, fresh and loaded with beautiful minerality. The palate is richly textured and fleshy, showing fruits such as slightly unripe pineapple, dried peaches and zippy grapefruit.
Pair with grilled mackerel or tuna sashimi.

Suertes del Marqués is a family winery that has been producing wines since 2006. Their tradition as winegrowers dates back twenty years, growing and selling grapes to other wineries in the Apellation Valle de La Orotava. "Geographically we are in the north of the island of Tenerife, in Valle de La Orotava, a valley within the town of the same name. Without losing sight of the respect for tradition, cornerstone of our winery philosophy, in Suertes del Marqués we artificially interfere as little as possible in the production of our wines, so we work with indigenous yeasts, avoid racking and using only minimal amounts of sulphur in our wines."
"All processes in the cellar are carried out by hand, from works in the vineyard to harvest. We avoid any systemic treatments in the vineyard, using only natural products when vine diseases eventually arise."
