Tasting Notes: 2020 was a strenuous year for the growers, where an incredible amount of work had to be done in the vineyards to keep up with the challenges brought on by rain and mildew. However, it resulted in a high-quality harvest with an average loss of 40% of fruit due to devastating spring mildew outbreaks, resulting in leaf loss and reduction in the number of bunches. Harvest ended up being early, at the beginning of August. Despite the setbacks, the quality of the grapes that remained was very good. 2020 is showing fresher than 2019, with less alcohol, more fruit, and softer tannins, which will result in fresh, long-lasting wines to drink now or later. This wine combines both freshness and power; with Mediterranean garrigue aromatics and a core of mouth-watering fruit destined to pair incredibly well with any food. It is a warm introduction to the soul and spirit of Mallorca, a joyous red table wine destined to elevate any meal or situation. It is produced with low intervention and in limited quantities.
