Dolç Martina 2013
Sweet white wine made from harvested grapes of which 60% have been affected by noble Botrytis.This fungus does not usually occur in the Mallorcan vineyards due to the climate, however, once every several years it does, and gives us a special wine such as this Martina. The wine is named after the producer’s first granddaughter and € 1 from each bottle sold is donated to the fight against Female Genital Mutilation. Miguel calls it his “most precious treasure”.
