Can Xanet 2016 Vino de la Tierra de Mallorca

26.95

 

40% Merlot, 38% Syrah, 17% Gorgollassa and 5% Manto Negro

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...

 

It evokes cherries in syrup, with a hint of thyme and herbs, and a touch of smoke and vanilla. The palate is smooth, balanced and flavoursome.

 

“There is an intense herbal strike on the nose of the 2016 Ca’n Xanet, a peppery and spicy blend of 40% Merlot, 38% Syrah, 17% Gorgollassa and 5% Manto Negro that fermented in oak vats and aged in barrique for 12 months. The palate is quite light and has a soft texture.”

Robert Parker 2019
