Characteristics Petit Caus Blanc

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Still wines with direct aromas. There is nowhere that makes them better than the D.O. Penedés. In the north of Spain, between Barcelona and Tarragona, this denomination’s vines ripen between the sea and the mountains, influenced by a large number of microclimates that contribute to the true richness of the area. Among these tremendously aromatic wines is Petit Caus Blanc.

Petit Caus Blanc is a young white wine produced by Can Ràfols dels Caus. This estate is a thousand years old, with records dating back as far as the year 992, and is located right in the Garraf Massif (in the Catalan coastal mountain range). This is where, at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level on sloping terraces, we find 700 hectares of vineyards growing around 28 grape varieties (both international and native), where the undisputed queen is the Xarel·lo. In this area, formed about 20 million years ago on the seabed, the soil is made up of calcium carbonate and magnesium and is very rich in microelements and minerals. The unique climate (with scarce rainfall and temperatures regulated by the nearby sea), together with the completely manual work (without chemical products), result in high quality grapes and balanced organic wines.

Part of the secret of Petit Caus Blanc also lies in the harvest and vinification, which are completely manual, allowing spontaneous fermentations with native yeasts and microvinifications of the different plots. This work, which involves a great exercise of traceability and identification of each plot and batch of grapes, would not be possible without the construction of a new winery championed by Carlos Esteva (the winery’s current generation), equipped with the latest technology and designed at different levels to allow gravity to do the work. The Petit Caus Blanc grapes are macerated at cold temperatures and gently pressed. The must ferments in stainless steel tanks for 3 weeks. Finally, the wine is left to settle and bottled without filtering.

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.
