Wine Description:
Celler del Roure Parotet is a remarkable red wine made from lesser known varieties using uncommon methods. Cellar del Roure is located in the south east of the Valencian community. The exact make-up of this wine changes from vintage to vintage. The wine is focused upon the grape variety Mandon, locally called Mando, which hails from the Balearic islands. In some years, Monastrell is sometimes used in support. This rare Mandon gapre is prone to oxidation so the winemaking protects it from oxygen exposure. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks via ambient yeasts, and with a short vatting time. Maturation takes place in clay jars burried in the ground. The end result is a wine with a freshness that belies its concentration and rich body. A must for those who enjoy styles such as Beaujolais Cru or those who enjoy the truly unique wines of the world.

Wine Expert Note:

The Celler del Roure Parotet is an unique wine that showcases both a rare Spanish grape variety and the use of ceramic vessels in maturation. Expect a deep ruby color in the glass, which will be followed by a nose of ripe raspberry fruit, and balsamic vinegar with a floral overtone. The palate shows a marked degree of mid-palate fruit concentration and ripe tannins all briliantly balanced by vibrant acidity and long dry finish. This is an enjoyable wine to drink even without considering its unique nature. Try it with BBQ chicken and drink within 10 years. Read more
Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
