Can Xanet is a 2-hectare vineyard in Northern Majorca situated between the towns of Pollensa and Alcúdia in the foothills of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains. The vineyard’s proximity to the sea ensures the benefits of a special microclimate, as the thermal wind that appears in summer cools the vines, avoiding excessively early ripening. They grow four varieties of grape: Merlot, Syrah, Mantonegro and Gorgollassa. In addition, about 1,000 kilos of Callet acquired from an ecological vineyard. After a process of malolactic fermentation, 80% of the product is taken to new, one, two and three-year-old 225L French oak barrels, and the rest (20%) is put in new, one, two and three-year-old 500L barrels, where it rests for 12 months at a controlled temperature and humidity.

About This Wine...

 

“Very delicate profile, light colour and almost texture-free. It is a subtle light wine that reminds me of a top cru beaujolais. Refreshing acidity and herbal character with wild berries and bitter-chocolate aromas. Very unusual but engaging style for a Spanish wine.”

16.5/20 Jancis Robinson 

 

“The peppery and floral 2016 Sibila was produced with grapes from the local variety Gorgollassa believed to have originated in the zone of Pollensa. It has 12.3% alcohol, a light to medium body and an elegant profile faithful to the local varieties that tend to produce light reds with little color and a subtle palate; there is also an herbal twist here. This is a little-known variety, with slightly more rustic tannins than those of the Mantonegro. Drink 2019 – 2023.”

92/100 Robert Parker 2019
