Cara Nord

The 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.
