Description

Celler del Roure Cullerot

Celler del Roure Cullerot aged in Tinijas (large clay amphorae) shows the fresh and complex flavours of this wine. Ripe tangerines from the Verdil, sweet spice from the PX, balanced with fresh and mouth watering citrus, melon and a touch of biscuit from the Chardonnay and Macabeo. Finishing with a rich and creamy mouth feel that makes this wine a true show case of its style.

Macabeo and Verdil from 30 year old vines, Pedro Ximenez from 70 year old vines and Chardonnay from 15 year old vines grown at approximately 600 meters. Integrated plantings of vines over 10 hectares with both trellis and bush plantations. Macabeo and Pedro Ximenez grown on clay-loam soils/ Verdil and Chardonnay grown on sandy-loam soils.

Pablo Calatayud’s family, like most in the area, had always tended vineyards and made wine but it was his decision in 1995 to extend his vineyard holdings and build a modern cellar that gave the first indication that Celler del Roure would become the pioneer of quality wine in Valencia.

Rapidly recognised by the likes of Robert Parker, the winery has continued to go from strength to strength under Pablo’s thoughtful guidance, assisted by his dynamic young winemaker Javier Revert. It is his curiosity and thoughtfulness that lead to the significant changes that have taken place in the cellar in the last five years. Pablo had long been convinced of the quality of indigenous Valencian varieties such as Mando (red) and Verdil (white) but was frustrated that oak ageing of the wines, whilst improving the structure of the wines, sacrificed their characteristic freshness, elegance and distinctive flavours.

Historically the local wines had always been fermented and aged in Tinajas- large clay amphorae- and Pablo was fortunate to still have dozens in the ancient subterranean cellar where his family had made wine for generations. Early experiments were highly convincing; producing relaxed, integrated wines that have benefited from post fermentation ageing but without any masking influence from oak, and some of the wines in the range are now made in this way.

Meticulous care in the vineyard and winery reduces the need for sulphur and the wines are more “natural” than many a “natural” wine though without any of the “faults” that critics of low sulphur wines associate with wines made in this way. Most importantly though the wines more than meet the criteria of inclusion in the our list- delicious, artisanal wines made by great people with whom we are more than happy to share a bottle of these fabulous wines.

Cave de Hunawihr Gewurztraminer Reserve 2018

Straw yellow in colour with silvery gold tints. The nose is very complex, with notes of exotic fruits (lychee, mango) and subtle aromas of white pepper. The mouth is full and very long. This is a wine with good freshness from lingering acidity balanced with a touch of residual sugar on the finish.

Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley 2018

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2012

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon. The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.

Aromo Viognier 2018

Full bodied white with a rich background of savoury notes, a very aromatic peach and mayblossom fruit character, but without any sweetness. No oak and fresh fruit makes this wine a real winner. The Aromo wines have a great charm and appeal and this is no exception.

Domaine Pelle Menetou Salon Morogues 2018

This wine has a subtle, pure nose with aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits. The taste is racy and crystalline, clear with a citrus fruit taste initially followed by a saline and mineral finish. Nothing overly exuberant: just clarity and precision.

Domaine Gayda Flying Solo Grenache Blanc Viognier IGP Pays D’Oc 2017

Fresh, intensely floral, yet very fruity - apple blossom and lemon aromas give way to peach, orange and all manner of tropical fruit nuances, leading to an intense grapiness on the palate. This really is packed with flavour, combining a touch of richness with gorgeous acidity and a subtle herbiness. A beautifully made wine of real elegance - and brilliant value for money.

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre 2019

The Girard family have 6 different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989. This is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre. Pale yellow in colour. The nose is fresh and full of hay, citrus and mineral notes. The palate is medium in body with crisp lemon acidity and an appealing creamy complexity alongside the ripe peach, elderflower and mineral flavours which last well on the long finish.
