Valencia is loceted at the centre of Spain`s east coast. Famous for oranges, paella and wine, archaeological evidence suggests that winemaking here dates back more than a thousand years.
Dutchman Derrick Neleman studied to become a biodynamic farmer. After his training he ended up on vineyards in Spain and realised this is where he wanted to make his own wine. He settled in Valencia and focusses on making wines which reflect the terroir. All Neleman wines are made without the use of pesticides or additives and are certified vegan. They also plant trees to compensate their CO2 emissions and are carbon proof certified.
Made from Bobal, a thick skinned grape native to Valencia, from old vines which are around 80 years old. Old vines mean that the yield is low, but this concentrates the character of the fruit. The reult is a powerful and deeply concnetrated red wine, with notes of damson fruit, brambles, cigars, leather and cloves.
Perfect with BBQ meats, chorizo paella or rich tapas dishes.
