Keep it natural, baby.
Cati puts the Callet in ceramic. This accounts for 20% of the wine. Then the full mix goes into barrels to ferment for 4 months. So additional sulfites added. Much fresher than big wine.
Cati is a single mother and is currently the only female natural wine maker in Mallorca. She has fought hard to be just one of 3 wineries on this island making wine naturally. She wants to be a small wine producer. She wants to make lots of local varieties in small barrels. In Mallorca because of the heat the international varieties make for high alcohol wines. The indigenous grapes are fresher and lower in alcohol. She wants to make fresher wines. Cati succeeds in doing something quite rare. Most natural wines need to be drunk quickly. Otherwise they kind of odour. Cati's wines can be drunk over a period of days. That says a lot about the winemaker and her grapes.
