Suertes del Marqués (along with the other leading producer on the island, Envínate) have taken Tenerife wine from obscurity to worldwide acclaim. Unique, ungrafted vines (the island is Phylloxera-free), old vineyards and skilful winemaking are producing brilliant wines which the world's top restaurants are desperate to get on their lists. El Lance is a blend from several plots and local grape varieties. It is a subtle, refreshing red with a lovely tang, best served slightly cool.

Lightish ruby. Invitingly dusty, smoky nose. Chewy, so fresh, chalky-dry texture. Lots of fresh pleasure with the complexity that comes from respecting the site.
