Overview

Spanish for saffron, Safrà is a wine that shows the growing confidence of Pablo Calatayud in the ancient stone lagars and subterranean clay amphorae present at Celler del Roure. Safrà is a blend of Mandó, an indigenous grape of this part of Valencia, with a small amount of another indigenous variety, Arcos. Harvested by hand and partially destemmed, this cuvée is fermented by natural yeasts in stone lagars and stainless steel tanks then aged for 6 months in amphorae. This is about as pure and naked an example of Valencian wine as once can find, one showing a brightness of fruit and a forthright and alluringly authenticity. Safrà was created to showcase the floral, lifted, and perfumed style of wines that honestly reflect this part of Valencia – a style enhanced by Javi Revert’s hands-off style of making wines.
