Soil characteristics: Non-irrigated. Loamy textured, with a basic pH and a good organic matter content, making this a soil with little sensitivity to compaction and possessing good drainage. The basic pH means that there are few trace elements essential for the vine, such as iron, manganese, boron and zinc, available for it to absorb, so it is advisable to apply these at some point by foliar application or irrigation (if carried out) during the year It should be noted that the soil contains a high amount of gravel on the surface, which limits water retention in the high areas, hence the estate’s name.
Climatological characteristics: Mediterranean climate characterized by temperate winters with moderate rainfall, hot, dry summers, and autumns and springs, which are variable both in terms of temperatures and rainfall. There is a very good variation between day and night-time temperatures. The vineyard is located in an area in the centre-south of the Aubocassa plain and is characterized by wind and low rainfall.
Wines produced: Gran Vinya Son Caules, Vinya Son Caules Negre, Autòcton and Golós Negre.
