Never been a fan of the winter season. I am more of a creature of warmer climates. Crackling skin, ice burn and endless layer of clothing is what makes me loath winter. Last week, I told my wife during a pleasant hike in Mont St-Bruno, that the perfect winter would be Madrid alike. Day dream all the way…
Every time I feel particularly like this, I open a bottle of wine from the Mediterranean Islands and let it drift me away to a place where the temperature is 25 C in the summer or 10 C in the winter. Ideally, I would to live in this temperature interval one day. Happily would trade snow for a sunny beach, olive tree instead of tundra and a winter coat for a pair of shorts!!!
The wine that would take me to that special place
I recently drank a bottle of Acrollam Blanc 2017 from Mesquida Mora. Mallorca is better know for its beaches and happening nightlife rather than its wine scene. Mallorca wines aren’t typically exported, so in order to taste them you will probably have to come to the source.
Mesquida Mora, a biodynamic producer in a paradise. This white, a blend of Prensal and Giro with every sip takes me away to the beach of Caló des Moro. Its bouquet emanates the sweetest mineral and garrique perfume reminiscent of chalk, fennel and dill. Warm and inviting in the mouth, it is the personification of Sol Invictus.
