Cara Nord Blanc, Conca de Barberà

Cara Nord Blanc, Conca de Barberà

A blend of mostly Macabeo with Chardonnay and Trepat; although the quantities vary each vintage. The grapes are grown in vineyards at around 800 metres above sea level planted on a mixture of slate, clay and limestone soils, surrounded by the mountain peaks Sierra de Prades. Here, at altitude, the sun?s rays deliver more ultraviolet light and ripening is drawn out, concentrating the flavours in the grapes. Vinification is simple, to maintain the flavours developed in the grape; the finished wine spends three months on the fine lees prior to bottling. Shows floral, green plum and white fruit aromas, pineapple and grapefruit appear on the palate laced with mineral notes.
