Mallorca VdT

Mallorca VdT covers all the territory of the island of Mallorca.

The wines identified as “Mallorcan regional wines” are clear wines with marked aromas that identify the grape varieties with which they are made.

The whites range from pale yellow to golden in colour. They are aromatic with predominant aromas of fruit and/or flowers, with a well-balanced, fresh, full flavour. The rosés range from pale pink to orangey pink. They are bright and transparent with predominant primary aromas. The reds are dark and rich in tannins, with a strong aroma characterized by the presence of red fruit.
