Majorcan varieties bathed by the sea breeze.
There are many and diverse factors that determine the nuances of wine. The hand of the winemaker is undoubtedly important, but the climate, the particularities of the environment and the terrain also give the grape and the wine its own characteristics. We invite you to discover those of our wines.
The grape varieties that we harvest are almost all indigenous to the Balearic Islands.
But even the two that are not (Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon) are varieties that are very well adapted to the land here. We use Callet, Monastrell and Gorgollassa to make “Sa Tortuga”. The varietals Manto Negro and Cabernet Sauvignon are used to make “Sa Llebre” and “Es Cap Roig”. Moscatel for the wine that bears its own name and Malvasía for one of our most valued wines: “Es Mussol”. This last variety, Malvasía, gives us a great dry white wine of golden colour with a big aroma. It is a peculiar variety that is typically grown near the sea where the humid Mediterranean microclimate and the island airs suit it especially well. For this reason, the best-known wines of this variety are made on islands such as Sicily, Lanzarote or Madeira, as well as Mallorca.
Our Majorcan vineyards, therefore, are influenced by their proximity to the sea. And not only because of the sea breeze and its salinity: did you know that the reflection of light off the sea increases the light from the sun? It is a factor that helps compensate for the strength of the Tramuntana wind – (that can reach 100 km per hour) that the vines must endure. As intense as the wind is, it nevertheless contributes to a natural control of pests and pirates the vines during the hot and humid days of the summer months
And what does all this mean? High-quality wines with their own distinct character that we invite you to discover. Here, we wait for you to toast and to celebrate. When you taste our Majorcan wine, you will no longer be able to stop imagining its origins and the subtleties inherited from this wonderful environment (and you may even notice that spot of salinity).
