Situated on the popular coastal road MA-10 at km 87,5, the wine shop and wine bar are hidden in the renovated buildings. A secluded patio is ideal for sitting and enjoying the wines. Here, Antonio Darder – a master in oenology – has planted several vines on a hillside vineyard.
We are warmly welcomed in this re-built gem which is now a wine bar. In 2002, the winery was founded. Tax advisor Toni (his main occupation) struggled to build a modern winery in this particular spot. Pieces of land were bought in the village and two other plots were leased to produce grapes for the red Son Vives. Overall, the estate manages three hectares of vineyards.
The work on the terraces of Banyalbufar is very intensive and carried out almost only by hand. Thus the wines get their special character. Furthermore the extremely high salinity of the sea air settles as a fine layer of salt on the grapes – and can be found later in the wine.
This place has a certain magic, especially when the sun sinks into the sea. Can anyone imagine a more beautiful setting to enjoy a glass of wine?
Fusió de blancs 2013
Malvasía, Chardonnay & Prensal.
This brilliant white surprises with bright yellow reflections. The bouquet sprays a mix of fruity notes with a hint of oak barrel. On the palate, it´s clear, with a direct effect and fruity aroma. The aftertaste is lovely, with the typical Tramuntana salty note.
Elegant, fresh, outstanding white wine from the mountain village of Banyalbufar.
