APPELATION: D.O. Binissalem Mallorca
VARIETALS: 100% Moll
WINEMAKER: Tomeu Llabrés
ABOUT THE WINE: Just 10,000 bottles were produced of Supernova Blanc, Ca’n Verdera’s premier white wine from the indigenous moll grape grown in the cal vermell soils, consisting of red, iron-rich clay and limestone with small and medium-sized galets. The flagship Supernova Blanc originates from the best plots of old-vine moll from bush-trained vineyards planted in the 1950s in the villages surrounding Binissalem, including the village of Santa Maria, which are considered the finest vineyards in the area. Grapes come from the Cas Pastor, Cas Verd, Son Borrás, and Plà de Buc plots, planted at 130 meters.
TASTING NOTES: This complex island white is medium bodied, with a profile of citrus, chamomile, fresh herbs, fennel, and white fruit notes, which provide great freshness. Wines are made with low intervention and minimal sulfur at bottling. Production is necessarily very limited, as every bottle in this garage winery is sold each vintage.
