Characteristics Petit Caus Negre

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

There are few places like the Garraf Massif. This large rocky mass, located to the northeast of Barcelona (just 50 minutes by car from the capital), is characterised by being one of the richest and most varied wine-growing areas. Located within the D.O. Penedés, and bordering the Penedés plains and the Mediterranean Sea, the real significance of this area lies in its soil (shallow and rich in limestone, microelements and minerals) and its very unique climate (with scarce rainfall, hot days, many hours of sunshine and sea breezes).

These factors work together to produce very aromatic wines with a mineral character, like Petit Caus Negre, a young, organic wine made by Can Ràfols dels Caus. This winery, which is one of the oldest in the area (there are documents that show it already existed in the year 992), is run by Carlos Esteva who decided to go to live at his grandfather’s farmhouse in 1979.

This move meant the beginning of a new chapter for the estate; the house was restored, a new winery was built, the old vineyards were recovered (growing new varieties) and new cultivation methods were established. In addition to the initial 450 hectares of the estate, another 250 hectares have been recently acquired by Esteva to prevent a stone quarry being built that would have threatened the survival of the old vines.

The grapes, grown with organic fertilisers and without chemical products, are harvested by hand. Petit Caus Negre is fermented with native yeasts for 24 days, and then aged in underground tanks and in the bottle.

Can Ràfols dels Caus is Carlos Esteva, one of the few winemakers who live on the farm and strive to achieve their objectives, respecting the characteristics of the landscape and the architecture of the place in a sustainable framework. Harvest after harvest, in Can Ràfols dels Caus they experiment with different wines and varieties with the aim of making wines with a good ageing capacity, but fine, natural, elegant and with personality, which simultaneously show the fruit, the soil and the personality of the producer.
Pictures and situation Can Ràfols dels Caus
Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
