New Son Prim Blanc de Merlot 2010

News: The new Son Prim Blanc de Merlot 2010 is now available to buy.

Jaime Llabres, the winemaker says: ‘Once again, we have worked hard to instill our wine with a unique character and characteristics, and so maximise its quality. This has resulted in what is, in our opinion, an exceedingly good wine.’

The Son Prim winery is located in Sencelles, Mallorca and has been producing wines since 2004.

Jaime Llabres explains how he produces the white Merlot: ‘ The process of pressing the grapes has to be very quick, but at the same time very soft so that the grapes aren’t spoilt too much. Afterwards, the must is separated from grape as quickly as possible.’ The result is a fresh wine with a golden rosé colour.

La Trencadora Restaurant

La Trencadora Restaurant in Pollensa is one of the newest restaurants to be added to the SkyBlue Mallorca Food & Wine Guide.

And here’s a snippet of interesting information for you: Did you know that the italian term ‘Trattoria’ comes from the italian word for ‘Tractor’, these traditionally rustic countryside eateries were named after the tractors punters would pull up in for their work day lunch!
