This charged, fuzzy/tangy, textural white takes its name from a trellis system unique to the Canary Islands and known locally as el cordón trenzado (the braided cord). This type of trellising results in a plaited cordon with several of a single vine’s branches braided together. It’s an old-vine blend of Listán Blanco from the high altitude, north-facing vineyards of Esquilón and La Piñer, with a young vine vidueño (field blend) from La Florida, where Gual, Marmajuelo, Torrontes, Albillo Criollo, Vijariego Blanco and Verdelho populate the vineyard.

 

Hand harvested with a small portion of the grapes left on skins for fermentation in large oak for 9 months.
