About This Wine

Amphora ageing is the key component that allows this wine to showcase its fresh and complex flavours.

So delicious, calm, and gentle, with herbal and floral aromatics over softly sweet fruit, almost, but not quite, honey rich. It’s not heavy at all, yet you can feel and taste the deft textural touch. Each varietal in this blend imparts a unique flavour component.

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. The amphora seamlessly blends it all together, with a rich and creamy mouth feel. The refreshment & interest factors are through the roof here. Drink now, and drink with gusto.

About Cellar del Roure

Celler del Roure is a return-to-basics operation out of DO Valencia.

Pablo Calatayud and his father Paco kick-started this venture in 1996, by taking a long-abandoned 300-year-old subterranean cellar equipped with 97 buried amphorae ranging from 600-2800 litres, and bringing them back to life.

They have slowly excavated these centuries old terracotta vats and now use them as ageing vessels, allowing the wines to build texture without the use of oak. The rest of the operation abides by the traditional winemaking techniques of the region which stretch back over 2500 years.

Truly a return to history. Until recently, local grapes were all-but abandoned: Verdil blanco and Mandó Tinto, thought extinct, Merseguera and Arcos held in little esteem. Fast-forward to now, and their most noteworthy wines are based on these local varietals.

Additional Info

From The Importer

A multi-varietal blend of Verdil, Merseguera, Malvasia, Macabeo, PX and Chardonnay. The PX is 70 years old, the Chardonnay 50, the Verdil and Malvasia are 30. Verdil, Macabeo and Chardonnay grow in limestone sand, with Malvasia, PX and Merseguera in clay loam.

The fruit is de-stemmed and fermented as separate varieties in inox, then blended and aged six months in anforas. Maturation in clay gives an open, mature texture, without obvious clay flavour, nor any oxidative loss of natural acid freshness.

Blend : Verdil, Merseguera, Malvasia, Pacabeo, Pedro Ximenez, Chardonnay
ABV : 13%
Closure : Cork
Drink Until : 2025
Bottle Size : 750ml

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
