More about Ibizkus (Totem Wines)
It was clear to both of them that the vineyards are cultivated biodynamically. The vinification is very close to nature. International grape varieties are not very important. So you can find above all local grape varieties like Monastrell, Macabeu, Malvasia and a little Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Monastrell represents 95% of the area. So a clear focus on the autochthonous grape variety and on old, unrooted vinesthat you can still find there. Monastrell stands for a dark fruity but juicy and easily accessible red wine style. After Tempranillo it is the second most popular grape variety in Spain and has its epicentre around Alicante.
Ibiza - in wine and in name
In the early years the winery was still called Totem Wines. The red wine was called Totem and the Rosé Ibizkus. A rosé that perfectly reflects the spice and lightness of Mediterranean life. Strong in character, full of aromatic diversity and yet so wonderfully elegant. This rosé has established itself as a strong brand, so that one has put its name in the foreground. The derivation to the beloved homeland is easy to draw from the name.
In the cellar, one falls back on contemporary technology. The pure red wines from Monastrell are dark-fruited and fleshy, but show finesse and elegance. Some of the vineyards are over 70 years old and individual vines are significantly older. The combination of old vines and sandy-loamy soils has a stylistic effect on the wine in a lot of fruit and color with equally juicy structure and concise acidity.
