Selva Vins is the personal project of veteran Mallorcan winemaker Carlos Rodriguez Furthmann. His small winery is located in the Sierra Norte region of Mallorca. His artisan wines are created using minimum manipulation. He also prioritises the use of indigenous grape varieties.
A native Mallorcan variety, Malvasía, is used to create this naturally sweet white wine. The grapes come from a vineyard in Pollensa.
The wine making process involves spontaneous fermentation, with some kept on its fine lees for two months. Afterwards, it spends three months in a used 400 litre chestnut barrel (from the forests of Montseny, California). Nothing is added to the wine apart from a low dose of sulphites. The wine is not clarifed or filtered.
Production 2400 50cl bottles.
