La Comarcal Delmoro Blanco, Valencia, Spain, 2020 (750ml)
Delmoro Blanco starts out with lovely floral aromas coupled by hints of apple and pear. There is stone fruit on the palate with herbal notes and bright acidity, which brings a welcomed freshness to the wine. Chardonnay adds texture, and the finish is long and salty. This is a serious bottle for the price that would do well on the dinner table but would go just as nicely with friends and conversation on the back patio
ABOUT THE WINE
After a rigorous selection in the vineyard, each varietal is hand-harvested separately and whole bunches are pressed in a pneumatic press. Chardonnay is fermented in used 500L foudres with native yeasts, followed by six months in the same barrels on the fine lees without bâtonnage. Merseguera is fermented with native yeasts and aged in concrete tanks for six months. The two varieties are then blended and rested before a very light filtration, but no fining, before bottling.
ABOUT THE WINERY
La Comarcal is a small project by two good friends: Javi Revert and Victor Marqués. The duo met while working at del Roure, one of the leading wineries in the region and launched their own winery in 2017. Located in the mountainous village of Venta del Moro in the Valencia D.O., La Comarcal (“The District”) is a young winery founded in 2017 with the inspiration of making delicious, youthful wines—new expressions based on the old mountain vineyards of native Valencian grape varieties they farm with certified organic viticulture and native yeasts.Varietals: Mersguera (50%), Chardonnay (50%)
