A blend of young vines of Callet from Felantix and Manto Negro from Consell, along with a handful of other local varieties, planted over the island’s characteristic red clay soils. The grapes were mostly destemmed, with a small quantity of whole bunches in the mix, and macerated from anywhere between a week and a month before being pressed off to vats for six months of rest. The result is a delicate wine with a complex perfume of blackberries, red earth and wildflowers that marries wonderfully with the silky tannins and cascade of bitter herbs that follow. A litre of Mallorcan sunshine, this is simply as joyful and invigorating as wine gets.
