DOS / Rafael Cambra Winery
Red wine / 2014
30% Monastrell - 35% Cabernet Sauvignon - 35% Cabernet Franc

The 2014 vintage saw cool spring temperatures and moderate rainfall. As of May we had one of the most severe droughts in the last 20 years, with no rain from May to November, so it was a very dry year (annual rainfall of 180 litres). With no irrigation, we increased our tillage work so as to maintain the scarce spring soil moisture. The Monastrell variety grows in a 10-ha 55-year old vineyard with sandy-loam and calcareous soil. The Cabernet varieties grow in a 25-year old vineyard with sandy-loam soil and small stones on the surface.


Winemaking information: Fermentation with natural yeast in 2,000-litre open stainless steel tanks, with gentle pumping-over and punching-down.
Maceration at 25 ºC for 2 weeks.
Ageing: 8 months in 1-3 year old French oak barrels, and 6 months in vats
