    Description

    One of the most exciting wineries in Valencia, Cellar del Roure use a combination of local techniques, such as using large clay pots for the fermentation, buried in the winery's underground cellar, to produce delicious, fruit-driven wines.

    This blend of Grenache and Monastrell is pure and elegant with great freshness, aromas of red berries, licorice, and Mediterranean aromatic herbs. The palate is medium-bodied, precise and focused. Very moreish, and great with a wide range of food.

    Variety Description

    Grenache

    Grenache or Garnacha is one of the most widely planted red wine grape varieties in the world. It ripens late, so it needs hot, dry conditions such as those found in Spain, where the grape probably originated, Sardinia, the south of France, and California. It is generally spicy, berry-flavored and soft on the palate with a relatively high alcohol content. Wines made from Grenache tend to lack acid, tannin and colour, and is usually blended with other varieties such as Syrah, Carignan, Tempranillo and Cinsaut.

    Country Description

    Spain

    Spain is the most wide wine producing country in the world, but the dry, infertile soil found in many Spanish wine regions makes low yields making Spain only the third largest wine producing country. The country has an abundance of native grape varieties, with over 400 varieties planted throughout Spain though 80 percent of the country's wine production is from only 20 grapes. Major Spanish wine regions include the Rioja and Ribera del Duero which is known for their Tempranillo production; Valdepeñas, known for high quality tempranillo at low prices; Jerez, the home of the fortified wine Sherry; Rías Baixas in the northwest region of Galicia that is known for its white wines made from Albariño and Catalonia which includes the Cava and still wine producing regions of the Penedès as well the Priorat region.
