The entries into their range are the village wines named Delmoro. Delmoro Blanco comes from vineyards near the village of Venta del Moro, a blend of young and old vines from the indigenous merseguera and chardonnay. Vineyards are planted on calcareous clay soil at an altitude of around 600 meters, with a continental climate heavily influenced by the Mediterranean Sea. Delmoro Blanco is well-balanced and exotic, with notable texture and energy; a perfect accompaniment to the incredible foods of Valencia.
Delmoro Tinto comes from vineyards near the village of Venta del Moro that are between 15 and 50 years old. The garnacha that makes up 85% of the blend comes from a 4ha single vineyard called Guindal planted in 1987 at 600m. Bush-trained, old-vine syrah makes up the remainder of the blend. Delmoro Tinto is a Mediterranean red with great freshness and balance, with a fruit-driven, approachable palate perfect for just about any food pairing.
La Comarcal’s flagship white wine, Lafont, comes from Paraje Los Juncarejos, an organically-farmed plot of 2.5ha planted on limestone soils in 1975 at 710m in the foot of the Penya Foradà mountains, near the village of La Font de la Figuera southwest of Valencia. Lafont is made from 100% Malvasía Castellana, an indigenous Iberian variety with multiple synonyms.
Carmen is their limited, flagship red produced with 50% bobal and 50% garnacha. The bobal comes from Paraje Tolluelos, a two-hectare plot of bush-trained bobal planted in 1965 at 650m and one hectare of garnacha, near the village of Venta del Moro.
While this is just the beginning for Javi and Victor’s La Comarcal, the two “traveling winemakers” are already authoring some of the Valencia region’s most exciting wines. They will undoubtedly lead this generation of Valencian winemakers into new territory.
