"A deep, structured wine with well integrated oak and a delightfuldried fruit and leather flavour. An exceptional mature wine."
Can Rafols dels Caus is the 17th century house and wine estate that owner Carlos Esteva began rebuilding at the end of the 1970s. The property, which is 600 metres above sea level and covers around 450 hectares, lies deep in the heart of the Garraf Massif, a rocky outcrop that forms part of the Catalan coastal mountain range. This is a fascinating ongoing project of the heart and Carlos’ vision to make fine age worthy wines is filled with bravery and conviction. A key aspect of the production is that the wines are only released when ready to drink which often means long ageing in the bottle, and it is surprising how long the wines can age for.
