Celler del Roure Valencia 'Safra' 2015
Headed by Pablo Calatayud, in the heart of Spain’s Valencia region, Celler del Roure comprises 50 hectares of organic vines, ranging 15-70 years in age. A pioneer of the Mando variety, as well as other indigenous grapes, Pablo enjoys experimenting with modern technology on his unique grape varieties. ‘Safra’ is a Mando dominant blend, rounded out with 10% Alicante Bouchet and 5% Monastrell. Savory, spicy, and some Spain’s greatest value juice.
One of the 'big three' European wine giants along with France and Italy, but perhaps the one with the most untapped potential, with many ascendant regions and producers just now finding an audience.
