Celler del Roure Santpere Red

$19.48

Created in 1996 in the town of Moixent, Celler del Roure is one of the most exciting wineries in southern Spain. Nestled under Sierra La Solana at 600 meters above sea level, the naturally farmed property is managed by winemaker Pablo Calatayud. He is the latest in a long line of grape growers to covet this land. The first vines were planted here over 2,400 years ago! The wine cellar itself was built 300 years ago, and still houses 97 buried clay jars ranging from 600-2800 litres. Upon founding the winery, Calatayud set about restoring these time worn wine vessels. So far 20 have been unearthed, restored, and put back into service. By using the clay jars to make his wines, he not only respects the traditional methods of Terres dels Alforins, but also allows the pure nature of the indegenous grape varieties to stand alone. 

The Santpere Red gets its name from Saint Peter, the patron saint of the village’s church and whose denial by the third crowing of the rooster served to teach him about repentance. A blend of Tempranillo and Monastrell, this wine is fruit forward and full of bright red fruit flavours.
