Cara Nord Negre, Conca de Barberà

Cara Nord Negre, Conca de Barberà

The grapes for this elegant and minerally red are grown in isolated vineyards surrounded by forests about 800 metres above sea level in the mountains of the Sierra de Prades. Here they ripen slowly, receiving plenty of sunlight. The blend is mainly Syrah with Grenache and a little Garrut (Catalan for Mourvèdre/Monastrell); it varies from year to year depending on the character of the vintage. After fermentation the wine is aged in French oak for six months. The nose shows spring flowers alongside red and black fruits and wet rock; the palate is packed with ripe fruit and finishes on an elegant note.
