Bodega Sebastia Pastor is being run by the third generation – again with a Sebastian as boss. Both father and grandfather had the same name. At the time his father died in 2012, it was the 75th anniversary of the bodega. The young winemaker had to manage the heritage of the family business. Well educated, he came back from Tarragona Wine Academy and accepted the challenge. Sebastian could start directly with a highly modern winery, but an old-fashioned marketing system.
Located in the centre of the wine village of Santa Maria de Camí, the bodega still makes 80 per cent of its sales through ‘vino a granel’. This means plastic containers filled with wine and bought by local residents, restaurateurs, and tourists. For a newly trained wine technician it seemed a throwback to the Middle Ages. Indigenous grape varieties form the basis for the wines: Manto Negro and Callet for the reds and Prensal for the whites.
The grapes all derive from vineyards located in the glorious fruitful riverbed of ‘Torrents Fals’. Despite his age, Sebastian Pastor is not among the ‘young and wild winemakers’ on Mallorca. He does a conservative job, based on excellent skills on historical ground and with a highly modern winemaking technology. This year he will release his first sparkling wine. Cheers!
100% Manto Negro.
One look at the glass is enough: the body is a ruby red and the perimeter shines in light purple. A bouquet to fall in love with! Aromas of cherry and raspberry, and a hint of rosemary; amazing effect on the palate. The fine tannins are perfectly integrated. The finish is smooth and persistent.
100% Manto Negro grape-quality from traditional wineries.
