Drink today or cellar for up to 10 years. Decant before drinking.

Can Axartell is rooted in Mallorcan history with an impressive longevity of winegrowing on the island. Founded almost 800 years ago near the port city of Pollença, this progessive winemaking and olive oil estate wasn’t always such. Initially occupied by Moorish Muslims, the island was recaptured in 1229 by Christian conquerors who most likely discovered the vines of Can Axartell and used the grapes for the first time in winemaking. Centuries later, Hamburg-native Hans-Peter Schwarzkopf, took ownership of the estate and did a full makeover, both in building reconstruction and land management. In a commitment to preserving the land, Can Axartell vineyards are certified organic and the soils have never been harmed by harsh chemicals.

The Ventum is a luscious red blend of Merlot, Syrah, and the native Mallorcan variety Callet. Twelve months of aging in French oak barrels imparts a smokiness on the nose and palate. In the glass swirls an inky, purple wine with stark hues of violet. The first whiff is greeted with black pepper, cured meat, anise and black cherry. As the wine opens up a subtle smokiness emerges accented by dark plum and leather. The palate is earthy and herbaceous with hints of mint, juniper, and licorice. The mouthfeel is full and velvety with firm acidity and ripe tannins leading to a juicy, well rounded finish. This wine is delicious paired with red meats, game, poultry, pasta and charcuterie.
