Our blend of the three grapes (Tempranillo, Calabrés and Rufete) conveys the aroma of our landscape: it comes from three old vineyards between 80 and 110 years old located in Villanueva del Conde, at an altitude of 700 m and 750 m above sea level.

Soils: The soil consists mainly of degraded granite, with little organic matter, which means that yields are low and the minerality of the wine, on the other hand, is more pronounced.

All Cámbrico vineyards are cultivated in an organic way, no mineral or synthetic fertilisers are used, the balance in the soil is achieved by plant cover, grazing with sheep during the vine’s winter break and small fertilisers with compost from local livestock farms and the remains of stubble and pomace from fermentations.

In 2017 flowering was 20 days earlier than average.

This early flowering combined with an extremely hot month of June meant that the grapes veraisoned at the beginning of July, a month early. 20 litres of rain in July and another 20 litres in August alleviated the water stress and helped the grapes to ripen well, early, but with good quality. The grape harvest began on 17 August. We have never harvested grapes as early as in 2017.

The floral aromas of the Calabrese grape, thyme, herbs, the touch of sweetness provided by the Tempranillo and the freshness of the Rufete. It is a complex, mineral wine, more delicate than in previous vintages.

  • Harvest in 16 kg crates with selection of clusters in the vineyard. Manual selection of grapes.
  • Fermentation in steel tanks with indigenous yeasts.
  • Natural malolactic fermentation in barrels.
  • Aged in 300 and 500 litre French oak for 13 months.
