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.

    Great Wine

    Hint of sour cherry on the nose, mellow and rounded taste, the right balance of the acidity v/s sweetness gives the neutral note I personally like. Short and neutral aftertaste as well leaving a feeling of fullness. Needs few hours decanting to open up.

    Spicy licorice with some vanilla overtones.

    spiced aroma but pleasantly palatable. Lots of licorice and almost chilli on first tasting, but vanilla finally coming through to soften at the end.
