Supernova Blanc 2019

Supernova Blanc 2019

Just 10,000 bottles were produced of Supernova Blanc, Ca’n Verdera’s premier white wine from the indigenous moll grape grown in the cal vermell soils, consisting of red, iron-rich clay and limestone with small and medium-sized galets. The flagship ​Supernova Blanc originates from the best plots of ​old-vine moll from bush-trained vineyards planted in the 1950s in the villages surrounding Binissalem, including the village of Santa Maria, which are considered the finest vineyards in the area. Grapes come from the Cas Pastor, Cas Verd, Son Borrás, and Plà de Buc ​plots, planted at 130 meters. This complex island white is medium bodied, with a profile of citrus, chamomile, fresh herbs, fennel, and white fruit notes, which provide great freshness. Wines are made with low intervention and minimal sulfur at bottling. Production is necessarily very limited, as every bottle in this garage winery is sold each vintage.​

Vintage – 2019 was an exceptional vintage for Mallorcan wine, producing well-balanced wines with lots of character. The absence of rain was a key factor resulting in remarkably healthy grapes. Summer was warmer than 2018, similar to 2017, but without the heatwaves. Some rain in July and moderate summer temperatures paved the way for a healthy harvest with yields 20% below normal. Wines from this vintage are of exceptional quality and personality.

Vinification – After manual harvest in small boxes, the must is held at cold temperatures for four days to separate the gross lees naturally. 20% is then fermented in 500L French oak barrels, the rest in stainless steel tanks. After five months of aging on the lees, with stirring of the wine in barrels for 3 months, the wine is clarified using bentonite clay before being bottled.
