On the road between Manacor and Colonia de Sant Pere lies the historic estate Son Sureda Ric – not to be confused with the neighbouring Agroturismo Son Sureda. The trip leads across fertile hills. Upon entering the forecourt you see a chapel attached to the manor house. Neighbours and family members celebrate traditional island holidays here with a service. You can even get married here. The small chapel can be rented for weddings.
The surrounding land is cultivated with ecological farming. Black Iberico pigs wallow in the mud, sheep graze with their lambs on green meadows, bees pollinate flowers and make their way back to the hive. This idyll continues throughout the vineyards that surround the property. With three acres of vineyards and an annual production of only 4,000 bottles, it is one of the smaller wineries. The clientele consists of wine tourists and residents who live in the area. During summer months you can cool down at a wine tasting in the historic walls of the ‘possessió’.
The chemist graduate Javier Jara is a quality fanatic. A few thousand bottles are lying around in the stocks he would not even open at a family celebration or sell. Also, there were years in which the harvest was not perfect and no wine was produced. The motto reigns: “Life is too short to drink bad wine.”
Ric Pur 2008
Tempranillo und Cabernet Sauvignon.
Dark cherry-red wine with slightly purple seam. The very seductive bouquet has hints of ripe red fruit and some floral and spicy notes. The palate is full of vigour, fiery, and very present. Also the aftertaste fully convinces.
Powerful wine and even organic! Wow!
