Sierra de Tramuntana-Costa Nord VdT

The area where grapes are produced and wine is made with the Serra de Tramuntana - Costa Nord VdT comprises 18 municipalities in the northwest of Mallorca, between Cape Formentor and the southwest coast of Andratx.

Particularly worth mentioning are the single-variety whites made of Malvasia or Chardonnay grapes. The Malvasia wines are characterized by their aromatic potential, with a predominance of fruit and hints of pear and melon. They are dry, fresh, consistent wines with a certain complexity and good structure. The Chardonnay wines are aromatic, with hints of tropical fruit. In the mouth they are pleasant and well balanced with a long, persistent finish. As for the reds, the traditional local wine producers have specialized in wines made from a single variety of grape, using fine vines like the Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot vines. The reds have a very intense colour, with strong tannins, and they are wines suitable for aging. They give off perfumed aromas reminiscent of plums and ripe cherries, with a hint of fig or raisin.
