Celler del Roure Safra 2020

Size: 750ml

Wine Advocate: 94

"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, the principal indigenous grape of this part of Valencia, with a small amount of Garnacha Tintorera. 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, showing a brightness of fruit and a forthright and alluringly authenticity." —winemaker

Wine Anthology Team Review-Made up of 70% Mando and 30% Arcos this combination works quite well together. Made in old world winemaking style this wine is both expressive and bright having juicy mouthfeel  and a floral and fresh nose. An incredible value for all the effort that went into the winemaking. A must try. Cheers!

"They consider 2020 Safrà the more balanced vintage to date, with the help of the Arcos structure, which makes it longer and more complex. It's 70% Mandó and 30% Arcos that fermented in stainless steel vats with 30% full clusters and indigenous yeasts and matured in 2,600-liter tinaja for six months. It has 13% alcohol and a pH of 3.45. It's juicy, floral, tasty and fresh, with very fine tannins and a long, focused finish. The combination of Mandó and Arcos works quite well; the blend is serious, with structure keeping the brightness. All of these wines are incredible values. 20,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2021." —Wine Advocate

"It presents great aromatic intensity with fresh fruit such as plums and blackberries. Elegance and freshness characterize this wine with an elegant, harmonious and gastronomic profile. A great choice for a daily wine." —winemaker

Wine Anthology Team Review-I have always told my customers that the best "dollar for quality" ratio can usually be found in Portugal and this particular bottle exemplifies this perfectly. From the region of Alentejano, these grapes were stored and vinified at low temperatures in order to preserve all the intense aromas and flavors found here. An absolute steal for this money. A must try!!

"Very intense clear aromas of dark on the nose. Morello cherries and wild raspberries. Fresh on the palate with a touch of herbal mint, precise acidity and a long mineral-salty finish. Very animating - pure Pinot Noir!" —winemaker

Wine Anthology Team Review-A fantastic German Pinot Noir, concentrated with lively acidity and smooth all the way to the finish. Reminiscent of a fine Burgundy, you'll be hard pressed to find a better Pinot Noir at this price.
Drink up and enjoy!
