El Bon Homme, Rafael Cambra (75cl)

£14.95

An affordable and delicious organic Spanish red made from equal parts Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon from high altitude vineyards. Full bodied yet fresh. Rafael made four distinct labels for this wine (subtly different, in a fun way) and each case comes with three of each.

Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Monastrel (50%)

Region: Valencia, Spain

Alcohol: 13.5%

Tasting notes/pairing options: On the nose, dark ripe fruits such as damson plums and morello cherries meld with more meaty, savoury notes and a surprising floral character. On the palate, the sweet ripe dark fruits, savoury edge and soft gentle tannins are backed up by the fresh acidity that comes from the high altitude in the Valencian Hills.

Certified organic, suitable for vegans and vegetarians

The producer/the estate:

Rafael Cambra has spent most of his life in a vineyard. His family own one of the most prestigious nurseries in Spain, with clients like Vega Sicilia, Alvaro Palacios and many more. He established his own cellar in 2001 after finding a vineyard with 50-year-old Monastrell vines. In addition he planted some Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The vineyards lie in the lowest part of the Sierra, inland from Valencia, with olive and almond trees surrounding in this Mediterranean climate. His philosophy is based on minimal intervention throughout the process, from vineyard to cellar to bottle, creating elegant yet restrained wines.

About Us

We are a close family business and are currently in our second generation. We are based on our natural lavender farm, Yorkshire Lavender in the North Yorkshire countryside.

So why wine?

With a member of our staff, Timi, a trained sommelier; it seemed crazy to let that enthusiasm and experience go to waste.

Wine starts in the ground! Just like lavender the correct soil, conditions and care are vital to grow excellent grapes to make exceptional wine.

Our commitment to our natural lavender farm along with Timi’s enthusiastic expertise has led to a developing interest in natural, organic, bio-dynamic wines.
