Product Description
Details

This Spanish red wine comes from Menorca, the quietest, probably most charming of the Balearic Islands.

It is produced by Celler Solano de Menorca.

Sa Forana Menorca 2015 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Ull de Llebre coming from little plots located three kilometres from the seashore.

The vines are around 15 years of age, and grow in rocky soils.

The grapes were separately harvested and fermented. The Syrah and the Ull de Llebre were fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged for 6 months.

The Cabernet Sauvignon and the Merlot completed both processes in new and 2nd year American oak barrels.

This red wine from Menorca has a very limited production.

Drink until 2021.

Nose

This red wine by Celler Solano from Menorca is rich and nuanced. Remembrances of strawberries, cherries and redcurrants, combined with black fruit, toast, aromatic herbs, aniseed, menthol and Mediterranean garrigue.

 

Palate

This Mediterranean wine from Menorca shows ripe red fruit, juicy and yummy, over a background of dim mineral, balsamic and salty notes, combined with remembrances of clove, vanilla and cardamom. Good balance, excellent acidity, lively tannins and long, smokey-toasted finish.

 

Our personal opinion

Sa Forana Menorca 2015 is an interesting wine from Menorca that pairs well with meat dishes.

Well, who would have known that in our former domain one could find winds as delightful as this? A most excellent purchase.

A most interesting international coupage of varieties from Menorca. Good balance, restrained use of oak, medium body, enjoyable freshness. Remembrances of herbs which take you to the wonderful Menorcan landscape.
