Ca’n Verdura Negre 2023

Ca’n Verdura Negre 2023

The eponymous Ca’n Verdura Negre is a friendly, crushable entry into the range of wines from the Binissalem region of Mallorca. It is meant as a warm welcome to the unpretentious island style of Mallorcan food and wine. Ca’n Verdura is a blend of primarily indigenous varieties, with old-vine international varieties sourced from different vineyards of variable age and a diversity of soils (red clay, gravel, white clay). This fragrant, Mediterranean red is medium-bodied, with notes of wild red berries, citrus, fresh herbs, and exotic spices. It is fresh and energetic, with excellent texture. This wine is made with native yeast, low intervention and minimal sulfur at bottling. Production is necessarily very limited, as every bottle in this garage winery is sold each vintage.​

Vinification – After manual harvest in small boxes, the wine is fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks at 24°C, with a maceration of 7-12 days. Roughly a third of it is then aged for five months in 500L French oak barrels, while the other two-thirds is aged in stainless steel for the same period.
