First of all, it is the greatest wine I have ever tasted from the beautiful Mediterranean island of Mallorca. Secondly, it is a curious blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Prensal (an indigenous grape of the island) that is aged in a combination of tank, concrete eggs and Burgundy barrels. Absolutely spectacular, I tasted this beauty alongside some of the finest dry whites I had in my cellar, and it easily held its own, if not eclipsed those wines. Abundant notes of tropical fruits, crushed wet rocks, spring flowers, buttery tropical fruits and citrus are all present in this stunner as are a majestic texture and a long, dry, rich finish. This amazing Spanish white wine must be tasted to be believed. It is a credit to the brilliance of Eric Solomon. It should be consumed over the next 2-3 years." This is a great alternative to Chardonnay but still full-bodied that California wine lovers will appreciate. Bright yellow-gold. Pungent aromas of orange peel, honey and smoky minerals, with a powerful floral overtone. Lush and glyceral, with honeyed orchard and pit fruit flavors brightened by juicy acidity. Shows impressive depth as well as vivacity, finishing with excellent cling, a touch of honey and strong, stony persistence. This exotic wine reminds us of a top-notch dry pinot gris from Alsace.
