Vi de la Terra Mallorca
The grapes come from the estate “Can Baratat”, situated in the “Sa Serra” area in the municipality of Llubi. It is right in the centre of Mallorca and the vineyard is placed on a light slope (4%) with Southeast orientation.

Vol. – 13.4% ꟾ Tartaric acidity – 7.0 g/L ꟾ pH 3.24 ꟾ Sugar 0 g/L
Cultivation according to Ecological Agriculture parameters with mechanical weeding (without herbicides) and organic fertilizer. Preventive treatments which are less aggressive for plants, fauna and the environment are prioritised. Trellising system: double cord Royat, single and double Guyot with a density of 4000 plants/Ha.
“Blanquer”. Deep, poor, great water retention capacity and a high content of calcium. This type of soil is ideal for hot climates as they enable prolongation of the maturation which in turn allows us to obtain fresh wines with contained alcohol and notable acidity. Calcareous siltstone.
Classic Mediterranean climate with hot and dry summers and concentrated rainfall during spring and especially autumn.
Climate of the vintage
Cold and dry winter. The spring was very hot with a heat wave already in June. The summer that followed was very hot and dry. In conclusion, an extremely hot year with scarcity of water, less production and a harvest that was done 15 days earlier than normal. The produce in perfect sanitary state though.
Manual harvest in cases of 15 kg. Giro ros and Mantonegre on the 10th of August and Malvasia on the 13th of August 2022.
24 hours in refrigeration at 5°C. Direct pressing in cold condition to extract only the most interesting parts of the grapes, a light settling and precipitation process without leaving the must (juice) too “naked” and then co-fermentation of the 3 grape varieties together with controlled temperature (not too cold).
After the fermentation we leave the wine in contact with its “lees” (sediment) during the months of winter to stabilize the wine and gain complexity. Finally, after a light filtering process, the wine is bottled.
Appearance: pale lemon
Nose: terpenic character and aromas of orange blossom, stone fruit and a light note of liquorice.
Palate: fresh with almost electric tension, great natural acidity and a long and elegant finish.
