"The red 2012 Conca de Barbera is a blend of 42% Grenache, 38% Syrah and 20% Garrut (this may be the first time I have seen that grape varietal).

Cara Nord

View all from Cara Nord
Cara NordThe vineyards of Cara Nord, quite literally "North Face" are located on the north-facing slopes of the Sierra de Prades from 350 to 800 meters above sea level and surrounded by a national nature preserve. Here vines are challenged by continuous temperature changes, intense UV exposure and poor stony soils. The region has a complex geology where rocky slate gives way to limestone and gravelly clay and where the climate is influenced by the warm interior of Spain and the moderating influence of the Mediterranean. The geology of these sites, combined with the diurnal shifts in temperature, means Cara Nord can produce wines from grapes that are fully mature, but retain a high level of natural acidity and completely ripe tannins.
