Ca'n Verdura, Moll "Supernova" Binissalem, Mallorca, Spain 2020
100% Moll (also known as Prensal or Premsal Blanca)
This complex island white is medium bodied, with a profile of citrus, chamomile, fresh herbs, fennel, and white fruit notes, which provide great freshness. The palate is fluid and lively, with a fresh finish resulting from its good acidity.
The winery practices organic farming. The grapes are grown in soils consisting of red, iron-rich clay and limestone with small and medium-sized galets. The grapes come from the best plots of old-vine moll from bush-trained vineyards planted in the 1950s in the villages surrounding Binissalem, including the village of Santa Maria, which are considered the finest vineyards in the area.
Wines are made with low intervention and minimal sulfur at bottling. Production is necessarily very limited, as every bottle in this garage winery is sold each vintage: just 10,000 bottles were produced of Supernova Blanc.
Practicing organic. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of under 18ºC. After the fermentation is complete, the wine remains in contact with its fine lees for 5 months, and is stirred every 3 days. Before being bottled, the wine is clarified and slightly filtered.
