Armonioso entre la mineralidad propia de su terroir y la elegancia aportada por el afinamiento de su crianza en barricas, Trenzado 2015 es un blanco que no se puede comparar a nada. Las notas herbales conviven con ciertos recuerdos amielados, matices ahumados, barniz y frutos secos. En boca es denso y cremoso, con mucha profundidad y matices que nos recuerdan a los finos. Tremenda complejidad y gran capacidad de evolución en botella, es en definitiva un blanco para paladares curiosos.

Opinión de los críticos
"Of the two vintages I tasted of the entry-level white, the 2015 Trenzado had a little more alcohol and acidity. This is always mainly Listán Blanco (Palomino), with 5% of other white grapes (PX, Gual, Marmajuelo, Albillo Criollo, Malvasía, Vijariego Blanco...) sourced from six centenary vineyards mostly in the west part of the Valle de la Orotava on basalt soils at altitudes ranging from 350 to 700 meters. There are different fermentations for each vineyard, some on open bins and skins for a week, others in concrete also with skins, while others were pressed and started fermenting in stainless steel and transferred to barrels for the end of the fermentation, but always with indigenous yeasts. It matured in used 500-liter oak casks and concrete tanks for nine months. The skin contact (20% of the grapes) is faintly noticeable, and it also has had the benefit of one extra year in barrel compared with the 2016. They reckon the Listán Blanco starts developing this extra complexity after some six to eight months in bottle. The palate is very dry and tasty, with the mineral salinity clearly coming through; there's also volume and it's a little more exotic and ripe. It still feels more focused than the 2014. 16,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2016."
