They are young and full of energy. They break with convention and their own tradition: Explorers, inventors and artists of a new taste. 7103 Petit Celler is a counterpoint to Vega Sicilia and the giants of wine business. They have role models – but they don´t copy. They are developing their own identity.
With Sebastià Ordines and Pep Cànaves, the two agricultural engineers from the tranquil wine village Santa Maria del Camí, the island has two new young promising winemakers. Yet they fit in the field of micro-enterprises with their production. But ambition and desire mean growth will come soon.
Only two indigenous grape varieties produce the juice for the wine. With the red Manto Negro and the white Prensal the wines offer a very Mallorcan expression. The number ‘7103’ in their brand refers to the old Mallorcan square measure system ‘Cuarterada’. One ‘Cuarterada’ comprises 7103 square feet and can still be found today as a common term in the land registers.
Negre Bóta 2013
60% Manto Negro & 40% Merlot
A light-cherry colour with an intense film meets the glass. The bouquet is powerful and complex. Aromas of ripe fruit, such as figs, blackberries, and blueberries emerge. On the palate it is fresh and young. The Manto Negro grape is very present in the finish. With its lingering taste this winnder. Full bodied in the mouth and well balanced.
Good product of young winemakers! More of this please!
