The 1856 Vi de la Terra Mallorca from Macìa Batle shines in strong, intense cherry red, with brick-coloured reflections in the glass.
On the nose, complex aromas of ripe red fruits unfold, framed by spicy aromas of clove and pepper, balsamic notes, vanilla, as well as warm, pleasant toasted notes of barrique ageing. On the palate, this Mallorcan red wine captivates with a powerful body, a balanced and harmonious interplay of fruit and wood notes, soft and well integrated tannins. The finish is long and persistent.
Vinification of the 1856 Vi de la Terra Mallorca by Macìa Batle
For this red wine the autochthonous grape variety Manto Negro is vinified with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The harvest of the grapes from 25 year old vines takes place exclusively by hand.
In the wine cellar the grapes are gently crushed and fermented at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Once the fermentation process is complete, this Spanish red wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barriques. Finally, this wine is poured into the bottle and rests in this still some time further to harmoniously round off.
