Can Ràfols dels Caus: The wines at Can Ràfols del Caus come from a land that is unlike any other: the Massís del Garraf, a totally original and unique landscape.
Geographically, it translates as a calcareous mass of limestone that is part of the Coastal Chain, limited by the plains of Penedès and the Mediterranean Sea.
The austerely beautiful landscape consist of a series of hills –some of them rise above 500 meters (1640 ft.) with steep slopes of up to 50%– with gullies and watercourses, usually dry, where the solid bedrock of the massif emerges. This landscape limits the amount of usable soil available.
Ripe pit fruits with a touch of smokiness and delicate spice.
Sumptuously rich, mineral and floral and structured.
Pairing Chargrilled and roast meat and poultry, mature cheeses.
Seafood, all types of fish, chargrilled and oven-roasted vegetables, rice dishes, such as risotto and paella, pasta, cheese and dishes featuring hollandaise and béchamel sauces.
