Up to the current vintage, this Spanish red wine had been produced combining local and international varieties. In 2016, though, the winery decided that it was time to let go of foreign crutches. As a result, the 2016 vintage is, for the first time, a single varietal Callet, arguably Mallorca's most important indigenous red grape.
The grapes were organically farmed, following biodynamic principles and the traditional almanac lunar cycle. The vineyard is provided with a natural vegetation cover which helps to protect the plants. The vines are also fertilized by natural mulches from the area containing native minerals. This biodynamic fertilizer is also infused with medical herbs to help boost the strength of the roots.
The harvest of this red wine from Mallorca was carried out by hand. After that, the grapes were separately macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks according to its variety.
After malolactic fermentation was completed, Sòtil 2016 was transferred to French oak barrels where it was aged for 10 months.
Drink until 2024. Aerate 1 hour before drinking.
The red wine Sòtil has a cherry-coloured body with a ruby rim.
The Callet variety oozes sophistication. Extremely delicate, the nose of this wine by Mesquida Mora carries some nuanced aromas of wild berries and flowers, with a pinch of cinnamon, citrus fennel and sandalwood, and some enticing tips of liquorice over a dimly mineral background.
Fresh and fluid, with great flair. This wine from Mallorca is reminiscent of forest berries, with some balsamic hints, suggestions of spices (cinnamon, fragrant Jamaican peppers), some perfectly ripe tannins, sweet and very pleasant, and a good acidity. Layered and focused, it has a long finish, with an aftertaste of flowers, spices, and an earthy note.
|Our personal opinion||
The excellent Sòtil 2016 spearheads the new wave of Majorcan wines which aim to express the great potential of the island's native grapes.
