Description

Cellar del Roure's Safra uses the indigenous grape variety, Mando, which the winery has worked to re-establish after being on the edge of extinction. Blended with Garnacha Tintorera, the grapes were harvested when fully mature and traditionally vinified in inox containers using indigenous yeasts, with a third of the grapes being whole bunches. After fermentation, the wine is allowed to rest for six months in earthenware amphorae. 

The result is truly rustic with a premium quality from close care of production. Fluid in character, Safra is alive with fresh and bright red berry fruit aromas balancing a pleasant balsamic sensation, lively acidity and subtle spice on the finish. Excellent with a variety of Mediterranean dishes. 

Celler del Roure have become the pioneer of quality wine in Valencia, Spain. They are committed to nurturing and championing the indigenous varieties of the region, most notably the Mando and Verdil grapes, both of which have been on the edge of extinction. With an aim to save such grapes, they pay meticulous care in the vineyard and winery, reducing the need for sulphur additions so that the wines are verging on "natural". Their cellar uses Spanish amphorae called tinajas to ferment some of the wines, preserving their characteristic freshness, elegance, and distinct flavours.

Organic, Low Sulphur, Biodynamic and suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
