Details

The new vintage of Cara Nord Blanc is a blend of Macabeo, Chardonnay and Trepat, an indigenous red grape from Conca de Barberà which here has been vinified in white (without skin maceration.)

Produced by Cara Nord, this Spanish white wine comes from vineyards planted at an altitude of 800 metres, in soils composed of slate and pebble stones. The winery practices an uncompromising high-altitude agriculture, following minimal intervention, environmentally friendly practices.

Manually harvested, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks, and Cara Nord Blanc 2017 aged for 3 months on lees prior to its bottling.

Drink this white wine from Conca de Barberà until 2022. The Cara Nord winery, by the way, is a joint effort of the Catalan winemaker Tomàs Cusiné and the American importer Eric Solomon

Additional Information

Appearance

This Spanish white wine Cara Nord Blanc has a very clean, bright, pale yellow colour with steely tinges and greenish glints.

Nose

Notes of Granny Smith apple, white flowers and underbrush, nuanced by remembrances of plums, limes, pineapple and passion fruit. This high-altitude white wine by Cara Nord Celler also suggests some delicate mineral undertones and a dash of white pepper.

Palate

This white blend made from mountain vines in the DO Conca de Barberà has a bold entrance onto the palate and a lush texture. Fresh notes of citrus, flowers and ripe white fruit, with some mineral and salty notions, plus a very good acidity and a medium, slightly bitter finish.

Our personal opinion

An already complex white wine,Cara Nord Blanc 2017 will considerably improve over the next years.

    Eric Solomon knows where to produce great wine. This is sharp and clean, with a peppery note.

  2. north blanco review by Alex & Marty on 10/28/2017
    Value

    High-quality white wine. Nice and fresh, it has a solid body and a good structure, so it is not a summer-only wine.
