Ibizkus Red Tierra Ibiza is made from 100% Monastrell (Mourvedre).
The combination of this genetically Ibicencan Mourvèdre, ungrafted vines, sandy soils and Mediterranean climate results in a juicy red wine with red fruit and violet aromas, a mineral and fresh character, ripe tannins and a long finish.
This 100% Mourvèdre is produced from 5 different parcels of a total surface area of 3.2 Ha planted on sandy soils very close to the sea. All parcels have been farmed ecologically for over 10 years. Ungrafted 60 to 90-year old vines. This results in a wine that is true to its variety while respecting local customs, with a special emphasis on the cultivation process.
"Ripe black fruit character with a touch of leather and spice. Dense and jammy."

Ibiza has a long history in wine-making dating back 2.500 years to the Phoenicians, who introduced the original Monastrell grapes on the island around 500 B.C.
Fast-forward to the 21st century, Ibizkus started producing wines under the Totem Wines brand name. Laurent Frésard, while completing his Masters in Wine Management, discovered a passion for wines created from the diverse Mediterranean soil and unique grape varieties. He joined the Ibizkus team in 2008 with the aim of creating great wines from ungrafted vines grown locally on the island.
By 2010, then Totem Wines became the second largest winery in Ibiza, with a global production of 30,000 bottles. Under the watchful eye of oenologist David Lorenzo, 5 years later Ibizkus has doubled its production to 60,000 bottles and is now offering red, rosé and white wines.
Our philosophy stands firm: creating balanced and elegant wines, derived from unique locations, fusing rare and indigenous grapes with expert knowledge, specialist techniques and a passion for wine-making.
Ibizkus Rose Tierra Ibiza is made from 100 percent 100% Monastrell (Mourvedre).
The ibizkus rosé wine is made from Mourvèdre grapes, from more than 40 parcels located in the San Mateo Valley (with clay soils) and the San José area (with sandy soils).
Beautiful salmon color. The wine shows a great floral character. In the mouth, it is balanced with freshness and depth of flavors, with a long pleasant finish.
Ibizkus White Tierra Ibiza is made from 90% Malvasia and 10% of other grape varietals (Macabeo, Muscat and Chardonnay).
With the Malvasia grape as the protagonist, Ibizkus white is an intense wine with its own personality. A straw yellow color with golden hus, it is medium-bodied, smooth, creamy and aromatic with citrus fruit, stone fruit and smoked fragrances. Silky on the palate with balanced acidity..
Vineyards on the west of the island bring density and fullness to the wine while the Cala Mastella vineyards add freshness.
Malvasia is grown on calcareous clay terraces in the San Mateo region and limestone rock slopes on a vineyard close to the sea at 180-metre altitude.
"Fragrant wine with a pot-pourri of flavors: apricot, hop flowers, cucumber skin and jasmine. Slightly spritzy. Would really shine with food perhaps.

Sunset Hills Red is made from 77% Cabernet Franc, 9% Tannat, 8% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon
Notes of brambled blackberry, raspberry, plum, and forest floor. Light in body, leaning on acidity rather than tannins. Youthful and vibrant!
The lighter style that Sunset Red offers widens the scope of the wines here at Sunset Hills Vineyard. Delicate and youthful, the structure of the Sunset Red is carried by its acidity and bright fruit notes, rather than heavy oak or tannins. We want this wine to be enjoyed young—with the fruit notes still bright and vibrant.
Michel Rolland, Pomerol vintner and consultant to many of the world's top wineries, teamed with Washington State wine visionary Allen Shoup to produce this limited release wine.
With its intense color and inviting aromas of dark berries, licorice, baking spice and a hint of smoke, the Pedestal is a bold wine that leaves a lasting impression. Dark fruit flavors integrated with sweetness from the barrel and richness from the tannins come together seamlessly, lingering across a structured mid-palate and lengthy finish.
Winemaking: Hand-harvested grapes were double-sorted to remove green material that might impart harsh tannins, then most of the lots were cold soaked to build richness and flavor before undergoing whole-berry fermentation in 55L upright French wood tanks. This, combined with gentle pump-overs throughout fermentation, enhanced the wine’s color, texture and mouthfeel. The finished wine was aged 22 months in 85% new French oak barrels.
"The 2015 Pedestal Merlot from Long Shadows is a blend of 75% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Petit Verdot aged 22 months in 85% new French oak barrels. Crème de cassis, wood smoke, scorched earth, and graphite characteristics all emerge from this rich, full-bodied, voluptuous beauty that has more mid-palate depth and richness than any other Merlot made in the state. With ample tannin, it will benefit from a year or three and keep for 15. It's a gorgeous wine."
