Review

The Malvasia and Chardonnay grapes used to make this extraordinary white wine are from trellis-trained vines in line with the regulations of the Balearic Islands Body for Organic Agricultural Production. The largest winery in Ibiza, Can Rich harvest their grapes by hand in August and transport them to the winery’s production area immediately to avoid oxidation, a practise which results in precise sharp wines.

The grapes are lightly pressed to obtain flower must which is then fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. This simple yet careful process produces a slightly cloudy straw-yellow wine. Aromas of lychees, peaches, roses or acacia flowers from the Malvasia grapes dominate, whereas Chardonnay is more noticeable in the mouth thanks to its strength and body. Seductive bitter hints also related to Malvasia appear and provide a contrast to the ever-present fruit, leading to a wine intense in aromas yet not too heavy. Its clear but not excessive acidity highlights its body and adds length. Fine hints of fresh honey and mountain herbs also appear behind mature citrus fruit. With its dry and fine tannic finish, it is very moreish and also goes down well with a food partner. It pairs well with light starters, white fish, or more exotic dishes which enhance the wine's originality. For accompanying desserts or an after-dinner chat, Can Rich also produces the traditional Hierbas Ibicencas liquor, created with 17 locally collected herbs, coffee liquor, or extraordinary and surprising sparkling wines made from Syrah or Malvasia.

Irrelevante

Tras una interesante entrada en boca ligeramente resinosa/amarga aportada por la malvasía se impone una chardonnay de las que justifican el ABC y que hace que la relación calidad/precio se derrumbe. Una de las menos acertadas elecciones para selección mensual. Funcionó bien para cocinar el risotto ai funghi. Degraciadamente resultó irrelevante a la hora de beberlo.

Un vino fresco

Un vino fresco, un vino para el verano con su justa acidez. Es un buen descubrimiento de un vino de Ibiza.
