Mesquida Mora 'Acrollam Blanc' Mallorca, Spain 2019
From the importer:
Acrollam is a limited, top cuvée produced from white grape varieties indigenous to Mallorca by Bàrbara Mesquida Mora. The name Acrollam is “Mallorca” in reverse; Bàrbara likes to follow her own path, often “the other way around” from what is customary, escaping the established canons. Acrollam Blanc is produced from hand-picked, old-vine, indigenous varieties prensal blanc and giró ros.
The label depicts a woman searching for her identity; femininity is prepared to plunge into the sea. It also carries a mandala formed by concentric figures that suggest the search for inner perfection. The perimeter of the circle evokes the return to the cycles of nature, like the vine itself.
Acrollam Blanc is a serious, textural, white wine with aromas of fresh plants, herbs, and spices, with moderate alcohol and a medium-bodied palate that is tasty with a salty twist, dry and long. It is a white wine produced with low-intervention, in limited quantities, built to improve with time in bottle; the result is one of the highest expressions of white wine Mallorca has to offer.
