Perfumed plum and raspberry aromas with a touch of earth and leather. Medium bodied with wild berry flavours, smooth, chalky tannins and a fresh finish.
Grapes are sourced from ten year old vines, grown on sandy soil with stony topsoil. The climate is continental and temperatures in summer can reach as high as 40 degrees, but this is moderated by the altitude of 700 m above sea level.
Rafael Cambra has spent most of his life in a vineyard. His family own one of the most prestigious nurseries in Spain, with clients like Vega Sicilia, Alvaro Palacios and many more. He established his own cellar in 2001 after finding a vineyard with 50-year-old Monastrell vines. In addition he planted some Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The vineyards lie in the lowest part of the Sierra, inland from Valencia, with olive and almond trees surrounding in this Mediterranean climate. His philosophy is based on minimal intervention throughout the process, from vineyard to cellar to bottle, creating elegant yet restrained wines.
