D.O. Binissalem Mallorca (Balearic Islands)
Ca'n Verdura Viticultorsis the personal project that Tomeu Llabrés embarked on in 2012 in a small garage inBinissalem.
After training as an oenologist in Tarragona, learning all the secrets of the island's native varieties together with Francesc Grimalt and completing his training in the Priorat region, Tomeu found an old garage in Binissalem in which he was able to establish his small winery.
Ca'n Vegetable wines stand out due to their marked Mediterranean character, with a great varietal expression, especially in their single varietal forms of varieties that are native to the island, all produced from small vineyards in the area worked with minimal intervention, and with the utmost respect for the terroir and its landscape.
Ca'n Vegetable is a wine made with Mantonegro, Merlot, Monastrell and Callet from small vineyards in the centre of the island, planted in loamy clay soils.
The grapes are harvested manually and placed in 15-kg boxes. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, below 24° C, with a maceration period of 20 to 25 days. Once the skins are pressed, the wine is aged for 6 months, half in American oak barrels and the other half in stainless steel vats. Before being bottled, the wine is clarified and slightly filtered.
Ca'n Vegetable is a juicy, light and refreshing wine. On the nose, aromas of fresh red fruit stand out, with floral and spicy notes. The palate is lively, with a good structure and a long and fresh finish.
