On the edge of Santa Eugènia in the centre of Mallorca is the Bodega Taujana. This dinky little stone house looks more like a small country inn than a winery. Even when entering the bar the idea of a village pub remains. Only two steel tanks behind the door give the impression of being in the right place. But, finally, when one enters the production centre via the staircase, wine-making equipment and numerous stainless steel tanks reveal a modern winery. The latest technology, perfectly stored wine, and a gleaming basement floor impress the visitors. For 2,50 euros per litre, price-conscious wine drinkers can buy their juice of the grape, which they lug home in a plastic container.
A considerable 95% of total production is sold in this old-fashioned manner. Therefore, we consider ourselves fortunate to get a real bottle of wine: a Crianza at the price of just 5,50 euros. The name Torrent Fals sounds promising. The vineyards of highly regarded Bodega Ribas also grow in this old river bed, the so-called Torrent Fals. In a blind tasting this wine was the greatest surprise: an excellent, honest wine, no frills. And one thing becomes clear: “Mallorca’s wines are not expensive. The Crianza from Vinya Taujana is proof of that.”
Torrent Fals Crianza 2011
52% Manto Negro, 24% Cabermet Sauvignon,16% Syrah & 8% Merlot.
In the glass you can see immediately, that this wine is well made. The wine shines in deep-red ruby colours. The bouquet seduces with red fruits and subtle toasty notes. It is fresh on the palate with fine tannins. The finish is long-lasting. Excellent price-performance ratio.
