Wine Sió 2018
Since 2000, Sió has paid tribute to the winery's grandmother, after whom it is named, with a coupage principally containing old vine Mantonegro (60%). It's accompanied by 25% Syrah, 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, which bring structure to the ensemble. An elegant, fruity and profound wine, with the mineral background supplied by the vineyard's chalky soils.
Having a powerful and complex nose, the dominant aromas in its bouquet are of ripe black fruit (sloe and plum), underpinned by mineral, spicy (nutmeg, cinnamon, cocoa) and balsamic notes. On the palate it appears fresh, balanced, with sweet and velvety tannins, and exhibits a great variety of nuances typical of the Majorcan terroir. Ideal for accompanying grilled meats, roasts, stews and red meats, cured cheeses and Iberian ham.

Mallorca at its Very Best
We were lucky to visit the vineyard the year and try their wines - they are rich deep and amazing value for the quality you get - seeing a small producer create wine like this and the care and time they take with the vines the production and down to choosing the best barrels to showcase their wine make you think this this wine is outstanding value Vinissimus sell this wine for the same price that you can buy it at the vineyard showing that they are a great company for buying wine from. The wine is one of the best ways to taste the local Mallorcian grapes at their bestby: Emma (02/12/2018) - Vintage 2016
