Product Description
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.

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

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 blend of Chardonnay, Macabeo and Trepat from the DO Conca de Barberà also suggests some delicate mineral undertones and a dash of white pepper.

Palate

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.

Our personal opinion

An enjoyable white wine, Cara Nord Blanc 2019 will pair excellently with fish dishes and seafood paella.

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

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