Ca'N Verdura 2018 Son Agullo Mantonegro

From a single old vine planting of Mantonegro called Pla de Buc; this is quite lovely island wine. The nose is deep and evocative with aromas of orange peel, dried cherry, spice, and a savory earth note. The palate is moderate in weight with cherry, spice, earth and a red fruit lift. D&M Tasting Notes

2018 in Mallorca was an excellent year for lighter structured wines, with even ripening, which produced very elegant, balanced wines with good freshness and potential to age. The 2018 Son Agulló is a luminous, enchanting red wine. Aromatically intense with a palate of exceptional depth of flavor, electricity, and character. 200 cases produced.

With over fourteen million tourists visiting Mallorca each year, in recent times, the island was indeed in danger of losing its unique cultural heritage and a rich trove of indigenous grape varieties to international grapes planted in neat rows at wineries designed as vanity projects. The cost of vineyard land has soared, with luxury vacation homes replacing old vineyards without regard for the region’s unique cultural tradition of planting vines in polyculture. Such is the price of living in paradise where the story is similar to other islands across the Mediterranean, which struggle with the mixed-blessings of balancing the success of international tourism with the retention of the cultural traditions that created the demand in the first place.

However, all is not lost. The seeds of Mallorca’s rebirth lie within the new generation of winemakers, farmers, and chefs who are diligently cataloging, recuperating, replanting, and exalting the thousands of years of history pre-dating the boon of modern tourism. Like a Supernova, the modern wine and culinary scene of Mallorca are rapidly reviving and celebrating local, ecologically-sustainable food and wine production, which is both culturally relevant and gastronomically compelling. Starting with modest budgets and against the odds, our protagonists are now leading the conversation about the future of conservation and agriculture on the island. Importer Notes
