Review

Safrà (which means saffron) is a red wine from Celler del Roure, a family winery praised by both renowned wine critics and the general wine-loving public. Owned by Pablo Calatayud, an agricultural engineer and above all an enthusiast of the world of wine, the winery has managed to recover the almost extinct local grape variety Mandó, and use it to create excellent wines such as Safrà.

Safrà forms part of the winery's "vinos antiguos" (traditional wines) collection which aims to recover the forgotten winemaking heritage of Mediterranean landscapes. It is made exclusively from local varieties from south-east Spain such as Mandó and Arcos, an almost-lost variety which adds a degree of freshness and complexity to the blend. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and old stone deposits using local yeasts and 30% of whole bunches, with gentle macerations at low temperatures. The finished wine is left to age for 6 months in old 2,800-litre clay vessels in the winery's underground cellar.

Safra is a spectacularly floral and aromatically complex wine, offering depth and flavour with an unexpectedly restrained palate. All in all, a fresh and subtle yet very elegant wine with fine tannins.

    Rico

    Sabroso Vino singular por su uva mandón. Puede no gustar pero vale la pena probarlo. Joven y fresco

    Un buen vino Valenciano.

    Elaborado con mandó, garnacha tintorera y monastrell, con aromas de frutillos rojos. Fresco y fácil de beber y con un regusto final duradero. Un buen vino.

    Azafrán!!!

    Todo sutileza en esta pequeña joyita de Pablo Calatayud, buscando un equilibro casi imposible entre lo mejor del carácter mediterráneo, las especias y el azafrán con toques salinos y una acidez y frescura propias de latitudes más septentrionales. Un poco tímido en nariz, sutil pero que gana complejidad al segundo y tercer trago...Y los que vengan. Bravo
