A bright, full-bodied organic Spanish red made from equal parts Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon from Valencian Hills. The combination of high-altitude vineyards with old vines, produce small quantities of highly concentrated fruit that give complexity with fresh acidity. Flavours of damson plum and morello cherries are complemented by more meaty, savoury characters and fine soft tannins on the palate. Rafael makes four distinct labels for this wine, each subtly different in a fun way and each case comes with three of each.
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. He also 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 them. Rafael believes in minimal intervention when it comes to wine-making, creating elegant yet restrained wines. He is an innovative wine-maker, constantly experimenting with different grapes and blends until completely satisfied with the result.
