Here at the gates of Felanitx one man is very stubborn. 2014 was a year full of fatalities for Miquel Binimelis: a serious illness, tragedy in the family and then, at the end of the year, his business partner left the bodega. What Miquel had founded with three friends, he now runs on his own. Many of the famous wine village – with bodegas like 4 kilos and Anima Negre, consider the Vi d`auba winemaking bizarre. Miquel´s new vineyard is now two years old. However, the small vines are only visible when you look closely: you find them between the weeds.
Miquel’s secrets: No irrigation and no destruction of sensitive soil. What others don´t understand, is his key to success. Although water is abundant, he leaves the plants to nature, thereby achieving a lasting resistance of his vines. This winemaker focuses on the ecological aspects rather than on economic success. Only the best grapes come into the press. The pure Callet is even manually pressed in the barrel. The barrels where the wine gets its final touch are only of the highest quality.
Callet, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon.
A beautiful ruby red can be found in the glass. The classic bouquet with red berries, ripe plum, and an ingenious blend of herbs make it exceptional. On the palate, one finds velvety tannins, intense fruit, and a mineral structure. Great finish. Well-made powerful cuvée.
Chardonnay & Giró Blanc.
A bright-yellow colour awaits you in the ‘copa’. The elaborate barrel winemaking indulges the nose with roasted notes, and duplicates the fruity aspects of this liquid. On the palate it is juicy with a lot of finesse. The finish is voluminous.
Amazing wood notes in this white.
