Celler del Roure, Vermell, DO Valencia, Spain, 2019
Celler del Roure have become the pioneer of quality wine in Valencia.
Owner Pablo Calatayud is committed to nurturing and championing the indigenous varieties of the region, most notably the Mando and Verdil grapes, both of which have been on the edge of extinction.
The vines are grown on sandy-loam soils at 600m above sea level and planted using the Lyre training system.
The grapes are hand harvested and sorted before total destemming. Traditional maceration in inox containers for around 20 days. Malolactic fermentation in clay jars with lees work. Aged for 6 months in amphorae.
No oak treatment
A rich and fruity style of wine with big red berry flavours, subtle spice, mouth watering acidity, smooth tannins and a long lasting finish. The with the gentle micro oxygenation making the juicy red fruit flavours linger on your palate.
A wine to savour on a cool Autumn evening, or pair with some taps or fish, or slow cooked red meat in a rich sauce.
