The 2022 Vidonia is pure Listan Blanco from different ancient vineyards in the village of la Orotava at 350 to 600 meters above sea level. It fermented in 2,500-liter oak foudres and 500-liter oak barrels with indigenous yeasts and matured in those containers for 11 months. The wine was very recently bottled when I tasted it, and the nose was a bit dizzy, so I had to be guided by the palate, which is fine and elegant, reflecting the richer soils from La Orotava (compared to those from Los Realejos). It’s a little riper and has a faint bitter twist in the finish. 8,400 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2023.
