Default White wine drinker what the best Local wine

I recall ordering a bottle or two of macia batle (correct spelling ) is this still a good white wine or should I try some other Mallorcan wines .

Cheers

Smile Local White Wine

I think that the white wine produced by Vinyes Mortitx takes some beating.

They are a local business with their vinyards outside Pollenca on the Lluc road.

The owners are a local consortium, and the wine can be bought in a number of places, but certainly from Ensenyat Delicatessen in Pollenca.

You can get more information off Google.

I hope this is useful.

I take it that all the local rstaurants will have a good range of Mallorcan wines for us to try.

Cheers

Default White wine drinker what the best Local wine

I think most of us on here agree that the quality and choice of Mallorcan wines now are very impressive, and personally, I drink them rather than anything else when In PP, (with the exception of the odd bottle of Verdejo from the Rueda region, and Albarino from the Rias Baixas region of the mainland, which I think are Spain's two best white wines).

But at least these great Spanish wines are available in the UK, whereas the Mallorcan wines are not, except in a very few specialist outlets.

As said earlier the Mortix wines are well worth trying, I think they do two Whites, and the Rose is also very good.

Also worth looking out for:

Miquel Oliver Son Calo Blanco and Muscat white wines. The Blanco used to be the House white at Stay, but I think it has been replaced by The Mortix.

Herederos De Ribas - A very good dry white, again available at Stay, and I think also at El Posito amongst others.

Jaume Mesquida - The top end , (and priciest) of local wines, I think they offer 3 different whites, the Chardonnay being the one I've seen most on Wine Lists.

Macia Batle is widely available, also their Rose is worth seeking out.

Castell Miquel - one I've yet to try, would be interested in hearing opinions from any of you that have had the pleasure. I understand they're based halfway up a hillside somewhere in the Serra De Tramuntana Mountains, and their flagship white is a sauvignon blanc with the unlikely name "Stairway To Heaven", or perhaps they just love Led Zeppelin.

The Binissalem wines of José L. Ferrer and Macia Batle would seem to be the two most popular local wines that I see on Wine Lists around the Port,and I think that Stay and La Lonja would appear to offer the most comprehensive choice, although I would like to know of any other restaurants that have a wide selection of local wines.

Default Thanks for the info

Only two sleeps to go then PP here we come!

I have taken a note of the wines and definatley like the sound of thre Stairway to Heavan as I am partial to sauvignon blanc.

Usually our first night is in Stay so it looks as if we are all sorted on that front.

Thanks to all who provided thier input.

Cheers
