Availability: In stock
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.
After a meticulous harvest, this white wine from Conca de Barberà was fermented in stainless steel tanks, and then Cara Nord Blanc 2019 aged for 3 months on lees prior to its bottling.
The Cara Nord winery, by the way, is a joint effort of the Catalan winemaker Tomàs Cusiné and the American importer Eric Solomon.
This Spanish white wine Cara Nord Blanc has a very clean, bright, pale yellow colour with steely tinges and greenish glints.
Notes of Granny Smith apple, white flowers and underbrush, nuanced by remembrances of plums, limes, pineapple and passion fruit. This blend of Chardonnay, Macabeo and Trepat from the DO Conca de Barberà also suggests some delicate mineral undertones and a dash of white pepper.
This white wine of Celler Cara Nord 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.
