When Arnau Galmés is talking about what he´s already mastered today, one is stunned. This agile Mallorcan may not need to sleep. Every day he spends the early morning hours in his wine cellar. Then he goes to Binissalem and works as a part-time consultant for Bodega José Luis Ferrer. Back in Petra, he then progresses things in his own wine cellar.
As we leave the bodega after our interview in the late evening, he casually mentions that his “working day has just begun”. What does he mean by that? In 2001 he quickly built bodega premises in Petra from nothing. There are stainless steel tanks for a production of 125,000 litres or even 250,000 bottles of wine. But unfortunately many of the tanks remained empty in recent years. “Poco a poco” the bodega is awakening from its sheltered sleep.
Arnau is known as an excellent winemaker throughout the island. Many companies make use of his services as an independent wine consultant. And more and more wineries rely on the excellent facilities of his wine cellar. Here also, wines from other bodegas are produced. The plans of Galmes i Ferrer are ambitious; the infrastructure already exists. Only time is required to pull everything together. It will be exciting to watch, if Arnau manages to master the challenge.
Es Pujol de Maria 2009
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Syrah.
Classic light red colours shine in the glass. The bouquet of this wine is enchanting. Several fruit aromas put the connoisseur into a carousel of senses. Black cherry, figs, raspberries, plums… ! Jammy fruity! Some balsamic and earthy nuances are added. Amazing finish.
Just love this wine. Excellent price-performance ratio.
