Cambuix is the result of a hail storm which hit the vineyard in Santa Margalida at the end of August. As a result the remaining fruit was harvested and direct-pressed to make a rosé. Cambuix is a Mallorquin word for “bed head” because after the storm, the vineyard resembled the very same! Fermented and raised in stainless steel and puncheon.
Blood orange, clear. Crunchy, cranberry, pomegranate. Fluid, clean and fresh. Savoury, the white part of white strawberries. Mineral, salty, watermelon. Joyous summer vibes.
Ve d’Avior is the personal project of Cati Ribot, a third generation grape farmer, the inaugural vintage in 2019. Her families 14 hectare estate, Galmes I Ribot, is located in Santa Margalida, north east Mallorca. An island bathed in sunshine, the summers are hot, the winters mild. Fifteen kilometers from the Mediterranean sea near the Bay of Alcudia, the vineyards benefit from both the Mistral and Tramontana winds in addition to the sea breeze. The soils of Santa Margalida are iron-rich clay with a lot of calcareous rocks.
