White Wine Jaume de Puntiró Brisat 2019
Availability: In stock
As the winery's portfolio demonstrates, the manager of the Jaume de Puntiró winery, Mr. Pere Calafat, is a strong believer in the potential of Majorca's native grapes. The new wine Jaume de Puntiró Brisat is yet another example of his commitment.
It is made from Giró Ros, a very interesting pre-phylloxera variety with an elegant aromatic profile and a high natural alcohol content. Its high sensitivity to diseases and environmental conditions, though, makes it rather difficult to grow, this being the main reason why it almost became extinct some decades ago.
This organic white wine from DO Binissalem-Mallorca is made from a single plot of "call vermell" soils - a type of soil with a high ferrous content - at an altitude of 120 metres above sea level. The vines are farmed following organic and biodynamic procedures.
Both in Catalonia and in the Balearic Islands, the name brisat wine describes something very similar to what is currently known as an orange wine. Thus, after being manually harvested, Jaume de Puntiró Brisat 2019 was fermented with the stems and the skins and macerated for several weeks.
Pair this varietal Giró Ros from Mallorca with fish and rice dishes.
Clean and bright, the white wine Jaume de Puntiró Brisat has a nice orangeish colour with some amber glints.
Fresh and intense, this white wine from Majorca smells of pears and apples, combined with bone fruit (peach, medlar). This Giró Ros also suggests a note of coloured flowers and aromatic herbs.
Crisp, dry and medium-bodied, this Brisat of Jaume de Puntiró combines the austere note typical of orange wines with a great freshness and a certain exuberance. It has a delightfully Mediterranean character, full of garrigue and citrus, with an elegant, delicately bitter finish.
