«No compromise in what we do and how we do it.» – Daniel Morales
From Mallorca to the future
Who enters the finca Es Fangar, has the feeling that the clocks here tick slower than anywhere else. Only at second glance does it become clear that here one is actually ahead of the times. Leisurely and unagitated, oenologist Daniel Morales shows us his «stomping grounds», which cover no less than 1,000 hectares. Almost half of it is untouched nature, the vineyards only take up 56 hectares. Why not more? Because nature is given its space at Es Fangar: «Biodiversity is important for the quality of our grapes», says Daniel. The estate's woods and meadows are home to Daniel's allies: bees and other insects that play an important role in tending the vines, and 100 breeding horses that produce valuable fertilizer. The compost that Daniel and his team make with horse manure and material from the prunings is an important factor in the quality of the grapes. Another elementary factor is time: they waited 12 years at Es Fangar before launching the first wine. During this time, the soils and conditions were studied in detail. Because Daniel Morales does not do things by halves. On this subject, the oenologist becomes a philosopher: «Our time is limited. We will drink a lot of good wine... but what ultimately counts are the vines that will outlast us.» For Daniel, this view of the future culminates in consistent environmental protection: organic farming, conservation of the soil, solar energy and clean mobility are indispensable to him. The time for compromise is over: on Es Fangar, the decision has been made for slowness. To return to the elemental. To create something lasting. We were deeply impressed by the quality of the «Fangar Element». This wine opens an incredible range of aromas, sensations and emotions. And it proves that long-term thinking pays off in every respect!
