Vino de parcela. Named after the gully that crosses its vineyards, Candio is a single vineyard wine from El Barranco, home to Suerte’s oldest Listán Negro (planted el córdon trenzado). García estimates the vineyard’s oldest vines are up to 150 years of age, making the parcels of 80-year-old vines look young by comparison. The second idiosyncrasy is the soil, which has volcanic rock covered by a band of clay. Although the grapes are destemmed, 50% of the stems are added back to the juice, and after a long, warm ferment, the wine is sent to French oak demi-muids and large foudre for 11 months maturation. Bottled unfiltered. 

One of Jonatan García's more premium reds, it is an intense, spicy wine with a lifted perfume of dark inky fruit and earthy depth. Mineral and spice notes lead to a vibrant, structured and energetic palate packed with dark cherry and plum fruit. A persistent and deliciously long finish is dominated by spicy/sappy vibrancy to complete the picture. There is bundles of intensity and character here, and overall this wine is bright from start to finish. A great example of why Jane Anson has described Jonatan García as “…a man who has made the wines of Tenerife part of the late-night conversation of sommeliers worldwide”.
