Characteristics of Cullerot
Cullerot is a white wine from the D.O. Valencia produced by Celler del Roure. This wine is a blend of four different grape varieties: Chardonnay (30%), Verdil (30%), Pedro Ximénez (30%) and Macabeo (10%).
The grapes used for Cullerot are grown on old vines from different plots grown on slopes that are property of the winery. The soils are poor in organic matter.
At the winery the grapes are first destemmed. 80% of the grapes are then pressed using a pneumatic press, while the rest macerate with the skins for five days.
The must of Cullerot then undergoes a natural cold debourbage, followed by 60% of the wine undergoing fermentation in buried clay jars, and 40% in stainless steel tanks. Cullerot is then aged on its lees for 5-6 months in the same clay jars. This ageing process, which follows ancient winemaking traditions, provides Cullerot with a truly complex and unique character.
