Description

A fresh and expressive Mallorca white. Lush and exotic, with lifting acidity and persistent flavours.

Straw yellow with greenish flashes that reflect its vivacity and freshness. Bright and clear, it shows an attractive luminosity in the glass. The nose displays good aromatic intensity, from the indigenous varieties used, Malvasía de Banyalbufar, and also the rare Premsal giving white flowers, apples and pear. Very fresh in the mouth, with an acidity that remains on the palate and provides a great durability and persistence

The four months ageing on lees contributes to the complexity and creaminess of this lovely wine.

Taste

Broad with fresh orchard and tropical fruit, Hay and vanilla

Aroma

Fresh-toasted breadcrumb and white flowers, Red apple and pear

Can Axartell is a finca, or rural estate, unlike any other. It is a place where both the traditional and modern sides of Mallorcan winegrowing blend and coexist. It is home to vineyards, olive plantations, forests, hillsides and waterways that flow together into a harmonious whole. Yet before its rediscovery in the 1990s, Can Axartell had fallen into a long period of disrepair. Restoring the centuries-old buildings proved a long and arduous process, but that time was well spent preparing for the recovery and recultivation of the estate's first vineyards. From the start, the estate has worked exclusively with certified organic practices. The modern winery buildings were completed in 2012, all dedicated to the Can Axartell philosophy: respect for the grapes, the environment, the people who produce the wine and those who enjoy it. The first modern Can Axartell vintage was bottled in 2013. Its wines have since earned acclaim on the island and far beyond as well.
