This is the new vintage of Jaume de Puntiró Porprat, a single estate, varietal organic Spanish red wine coming from Mallorca.
A varietal Merlot, it was crafted by the Jaume de Puntiró winery from 20-year-old grapevines planted in soils composed of clay and limestone. The vineyard is located in the town of Santa Maria del Camí, a place protected by the Tramuntana mountain range about 10 kilometres from Palma de Mallorca, the capital of that enchanting island.
