As many visitors to the Bulls Head know, the team are fans of Mallorcan wine and one wine ‘Macia Batle Anada’ has featured as a ‘ship in’ wine for some time by popular demand.
For new readers the Bulls Head features different wines that do not feature on our list and these we call our ‘shipped in’ wines. Do ask what we have available when you next visit.
Tim travelled once again to Mallorca to try wines at several Mallorcan Bodegas, that, if good enough, could feature on our list or as a ‘shipped in’ wine for the summer or the Autumn.
I have to say the trip to Macia Batle was fantastic. We arrived completely unannounced and the service was excellent. The export assistant Olga Smertina was passionate about the wines and took us through the Macia Batle Blanc de Blanc, a fantastic Rosado and then the reds from the Anada to the Crianza to the Reserva. We enjoyed the wines very much and I have to say this is a trip anyone visiting Mallorca, who loves wine, must do!!
We did a tour of the Bodega which is open to anyone from 4.30pm when the Bodega re-opens. All the details are on their website www.maciabatle.com
We have spoken to our wine importer Boutinot and have already agreed to bring the Rosado in for this spring and summer!! A full flavoured deep pink rose that lends itself to both fish, white meat or even red meat because of its full flavour. We hope to ‘ship’ in for the early part of April. We also intend to bring in some of their other wines from time to time as the Crianza and Reserva really were great.
Please enjoy the photos from the Bodega and come and enjoy a Rosado in the sunshine here at the Bulls Head.
