We are pleased and honoured to have one of our wines, Sa Porta Murada 2011, nominated as one of the 101 best wines of Mallorca. This organic wine is made of the Merlot grape grown on vines of an age of 7 years and is denominated as Vi de la Terra Mallorca. The wine was cultivated according to EU organic farming standards following some biodynamic principles. It was aged for 6 months in stainless steel tanks, 12 months in French oak barrels and a further 12 months in the bottle.
The nomination is part of abcMallorca’s 1st Wine Guide, a guide to 101 Best Wines of Mallorca which was published online and as a printed press magazine only a week ago. It retails at the larger newsagents in Mallorca for 6,95 €. If you are interested in the variety of current Mallorcan wine, this is the wine guide you should consult.
The magazine’s collaborator, Stephen Nickel, characterizes our Sa Porta Murada negre as follows:
A light cherry-coloured wine pours into the glass. The bouquet is exceptionally floral, with a little touch of herbs. The effect on the palate is fresh, with many fruity flavours. Even the finish in the mouth maintains this freshness.
Beautiful, fresh full-flavoured Merlot.
Unfortunately, our thus honoured wine is no longer available. Only 300 bottles were produced and they have now sold out. Sorry, but we are only a small vineyard. But still, we are happy and delighted that our oenological endeavours are being recognised by some wine connoisseurs.
If you would want to try one of our red wines of a comparable characteristic, why not try our S’Antigor 2012. This red wine is made from the Merlot and the Cabernet Sauvignon grape varieties, at a ratio of 50:50. Again, this is an organic wine categorized as a Vi de la Terra Mallorca and has been cultivated according to EU organic farming standards following some biodynamic principles. This wine, too, was aged for 6 months in stainless steel tanks, 12 months in French oak barrels and, again, for 12 months in the bottle. Its alcohol content is 15% vol. The wine was bottled in March 2014. Its colour has tones of dark red cherry. Its nose has a full earthiness with lots of character. Its palate is pleasant, with an edge of nobility.
The wine is best served at 15º.
The S’Antigor 2012 wine will age well over 6 to 10 years.
The good news is that we have produced 2,000 bottles of this wine, and sufficient numbers are still available.
