Can Axartell Rosado

£16.95

Description

A Mallorca speciality rosé of rare quality. Full of Mediterranean charm.
Pale salmon colour, the result of the slight and gentle contact of the grape skins with the must before fermentation. Very bright and clear, especially attractive in the glass. It has a high aromatic intensity, highlighting mainly the notes of wild red fruits and ripe tropical fruits (passion fruit, mango). Soft and creamy mouthfeel, yet dry with persistent lively acidity. Made from Pinot Noir, Callet and Manto Negro grapes, it is full of Mediterranean character, refreshed by the sea breeze from the Bay of Pollença.

Taste

Creamy citrus and poised red summer fruits, Sophisticated

Aroma

Red berry with mango and passion fruit, Subtle Mediterranean herbs

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.

  1. I do like to try an unusual wine. So a blush from Mallorca was most welcome. Lovely pale rose colour, smooth in the mouth with both citrus and tropical fruit flavours. Perfect on a warm, sunny evening in the garden.
