About the winemaker:

Ca'n Verdura Viticultors is a micro-winery founded in 2012 by Mallorcan native Tomeu Llabrés in a former auto garage in the Binissalem denomination, located in the north-central portion of Mallorca. Tomeu has focused his energy and attention on the ancient indigenous varietal Mantonegro, producing stunning wines. After receiving his degree in oenology in Tarragona, Tomeu gained experience with Alvaro Palacios in Priorat before returning to Mallorca where he worked at three of the larger estates on the island. Tomeu sources grapes from old-vine vineyards trained in the traditional en vaso (goblet) system in cal vermell, red clay soil with limestone, and small to medium-sized pebbles.

About the wine:

Supernova, Tomeu's flagship wine, is 100% Mantonegro from vineyards planted in the 1950's. The wine is wildly fragrant with herbal-tinged, red berry fruit aromas that explode from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied and exhibits those aforementioned ripe red berry flavors mixed with notes of exotic spice. This wine is well-structured and finishes leaving you wanting for another sip. This wine pairs  wonderfully with any pork or poultry dish.
