It slowly returns to the village of Muro: the old wine tradition that had been lost over the years. The bodega Son Ramón was a major wine producer on the island for many decades. The phylloxera infestation caused the business to fall into a deep slumber, from which it is now waking.
In the cathedral-like wine press visitors can admire a well-preserved ‘barrique’ (oak barrel), dating back to 1746. It is testimony to the long tradition of wine on the island and most characteristic of this region. The fertile soil is ideal for viticulture. The hotelier family Ramis, operating the Grupohotels at Playa de Muro, is very closely linked to their home village. And so the reconstruction of the family estate was almost obligatory. 2005 was the year for the comprehensive renovation of the winery, plantations of 10 hectares and a considerable investment in new storage technology.
Young oenologist Cati works every day on the wines to express her own style and make the taste even more elegant and balanced. Still, the vines produce a low yield, but in a few years huge vineyards will flourish here. Even now, the two Chardonnays – one of which matured in ‘barriques’ – are special recommendations.
This Syrah shows a dark cherry colour. A ‘tour de aroma’ of ripe figs, prunes, honey, and dried fruits arises. The effect on the palate is complex and delicious, with a creamy tannin structure. The finish is balanced.
Strong Syrah from the island´s central area.
