The Bodegas Macià Batle of Santa Maria yesterday presented their Blanc de Blancs 2001. The presentation was made by Ramon Sevalls and Sebastià Cañellas, together with oenologist Arnau Galmés, who explained that the grapes used for this white wine were prensal and chardonnay, the latter accounting for ten per cent. The grapes were hand-picked from various Denominación de Origen areas in Binissalem and Santa Maria last August and September. Galmés said that they had taken particular care with the visual phase of this wine, which is clear, and yellow with greenish shades. He described it as a very elegant wine. Its bouquet is reminiscent of peaches, grapefruits and exotic fruits. The bodega recommends serving it at a temperature of eight degrees to emphasise its characteristics. A total of 60'000 bottles of the Blanc de Blancs 2001 have been produced and will be marketed entirely on the island.
