Bodega Es Verger_7-3-15_#2

Es Verger pays attention to detail. They put quality before quantity and have set the standards high being an organic winery. We tasted four of the bottles available, because their Pinot Noir is a specialty wine that Miguel produces only in small quantities when the harvest is good enough for his standards. The bottle in this picture was the last one from the year, the rest of the stock sold out. He has very loyal clients internationally and also from the island’s first class restaurants. We learned all his red wines are aged in French oak. All processing is done on this land and in the tasting cellar we were in. It is a beautiful small scale family production with exquisite results.


#1
Fit del Ram 2010
Grapes: Viognier

Comment:
Tawnee: The Fita del Ram was a sweet delicious wine. Perfectly refreshing on a hot day! It had fruity aromas and was fresh and smooth. I think it would be great after a meal instead of dessert!

Merie: We started with the Fita Del Ram, made from Viognier grapes. I don’t drink sweet wines normally, but this was light and delicious, with a smooth honey-like texture. I bought a bottle of this treat for a dear friend of mine who grows Viognier in Napa, secretly hoping he’ll bring it out for our band of friends!


#2
Sensual
Grapes: Mante Negro 100%

Sensual

Comment:
Tawnee: Wonderful summer wine. I love that it is made with 100% Mante Negro grapes. It is a true native Mallorcan delicate wine with a name to match the feeling it gives you.

Merie: Next Miguel poured their rosé, Sensual, made from Manto Negro grapes. I don’t normally drink rosé wines either, yet found this one extremely drinkable, fresh and lightly dry. If you haven’t liked rosés, rethink with this!

Els Rojals 2010
Grapes: Manto Negro
Cabernet Sauvignon
Merlot

Els Rojals

Comment:
Tawnee: This wine is delicious organic Mallorcan wine. You can taste the passion and attention to detail when you drink it. I think it would be lovely with a steak and mashed potatoes.

Merie: On to Els Rojals, their “everyday red” and a Manto Negro, Cabernet and Merlot blend. I would drink it every day too and found it really well balanced, thorough, smooth, and full-bodied. I loved this ‘modest table wine,’ and proudly bought a bottle for my Uncle who lives in the central California Santa Ynez Valley and has no shortage of good wine!


#4
Ses Marjades 2008
Grapes: Manto Negro
Cabernet Sauvignon
Merlot

Ses Marjades

Comment:
Tawnee:
This is an incredible wine! I just love it! I have re-named it the the black pearl because it is like the sea at night that flows smoothly and luxuriously over your tongue when you taste it. It was delicious on its own, but I can only imagine it with a good red meat. Divine. I bought a bottle immediately.

Merie: The label name Ses Marjades means the [stone] terraces – for which Mallorca is famous. Aged in new French oak casks, this is the award winning red for the special occasion. Made from Manto Negro, Cabernet and Merlot grapes, Miguel called the flavor “larga” and advised to let it breath in a wide mouthed glass container 20 min. In fact it is not a pretentious or overly serious wine, it is very balanced and complex, and perfect to honor one’s guests with.
