There are a number of things that most visitors expect when they arrive at Mallorca airport. Transfers that drop them at their hotel for one, and a nearby beach, restaurant and bar for another. But what most people don’t expect is to find an island famous for its fine wine and one with a reputation for having one of the best wine cultures anywhere in Europe. It’s not just the unique blend of grapes that grow on this gorgeous isle that makes the wine so special, it’s the attitude and climate too. |
Mallorcan winemakers adopt a distinctive Mediterranean style, which produces wine with flavours you’re unlikely to find anywhere else in the world. They’ve got their own way of doing this down here, and it really, really works. Here are some of the very best red and whites you can expect to fall in love with.
Collita de Fruits Callet 2006 has an aroma unlike anything else. The grower has been in production for around forty years and produces some very special bottles that are unlike other Mediterranean varieties.
A celebratory tipple, for the vineyard's 300th birthday, Sio 300 is a special tasting wine made using some of the most traditional methods anywhere in Europe.
Made by the same people who brought you Anima Negra, the Gran Verán is an outstanding variety, aged in oak from France and with a flavour that captivates connoisseurs.
A great one to take home with you is Galdent, which is grown from French grapes and lasts very well in its bottle. The vineyard is a sight to behold as well, which might make it a good stop on your return Mallorca airport transfer.
Sa Vall Selecció Privada is a special white that incorporates grapes including Chardonnay and Muscat. It’s a great one to try if you really know your stuff, as it shows off the Mallorcan idiosyncratic way of doing things.
Torre des Canong Blanc is literally an inspiring bottle of vino. The taste is so distinctive and individual, other winemakers are investigating how they can make something similar.
With these brilliant red and white wines showcasing the truly original style in production on this island, you’ll be wondering how many bottles you can take home with you. The great thing is that this is only six of them, and there are so many other varieties to try and to fall in love with.
