Mesquida Mora Sincronia Negre 2019

Sincronia Negre is one of two complementary entry-level cuvées produced from biodynamically estate-farmed red grape varieties by Bàrbara Mesquida Mora. As with all of her wines, Sincronia Negre is a mosaic recalling the combination of grape varieties in the blend, while also representing the history of her pioneering winemaking family. 

Sincronia Negre is a love letter to the rich mosaic of Mallorca’s diverse grape varietal makeup. 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.

Vintage – 2019 was an outstanding vintage for Mallorca. Overall the year was even and warm with a lack of rain until July, moderate summer temperatures without heat spikes paved the way for a healthy harvest with a yield loss of 20%. It was a good year for biodynamics, very little copper was used in the vineyard. In reds, the skins weren’t too ripe, but they were thick with very little must, so Bàrbara favored short macerations and whole bunch fermentation.

Vinification – Following a manual harvest, each of the varieties undergoes a separate fermentation with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel. The wine is then blended and racked into two and three-year-old French and American oak barrels for six months of aging.
