EL BONHOMME

EL BONHOMME / Rafael Cambra Winery
Red wine / 2015
60% Monastrell - 40% Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2015 vintage saw a spring with abundant rainfalls. The beginning of summer was very hot (7-8 days earlier than the previous vintage). As of mid August, temperatures dropped significantly, which made grape ripened more slowly. Early September recorded 20 mm of rain, which made it difficult to start the harvest. However, it was crucial for the late varieties, which still had a month to go. The Monastrell variety grows in a young, 6-year old 5-ha vineyard with sandy-loam and calcareous soil. The Cabernet varieties grow in a 5-ha vineyard with sandy-loam soil and small stones on the surface.


Winemaking information: Fermentation in small 5,000-litre stainless steel tanks, with gentle pumping-over. Maceration at 23 ºC for 8 days.
Ageing: 4 months in 225-litre 1-5 year old French oak barrels.
