The grapes come from 20-year-old flatland vineyards with limestone soils. They are located in a dry area which, besides getting a lot of sunlight, is constantly swept by the sea wind. Those factors keep the vines healthy and strong.
Hand-harvested in late August. the grapes were selected and then refrigerated for 18 hours. Then they were destemmed, gently crushed and macerated for 3-4 days. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature. After 10 days, Es Virot 2018 was aged for 3 months in semi new French oak barrels. Before bottling, this Crianza red wine was transferred again into the steel tanks and aged for a further 12 months.
Pair this organic red wine from Formentera with cold cuts, meat recipes and BBQ'd meats.

The red wine Es Virot is medium ruby with a maroon rim.
This island-born blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is quite appealing. Cedarwood, dry earth and red berries, with notes of herbs and balsam.
Meaty and dry, this wine from Bodega Terramoll has good grip and definition. Steely acidity, with round tannins and a stylish finish with a herbal tinge.
