CARA NORD Garrut27 December, 2017
Pink pale colour with transparent edge. Clean and bright. Outstanding nose with medium fruit aromas. Sharp combined with wild strawberries. In the mouth shows a poised acidity and a full-bodied lingering volume. Well-balanced with a nice mid-palate that contains some salty mineral reminiscences that wraps around a fast and attractive end.
| 800 m above sea level.
| 100% Trepat.
|Steep and hilly landscape, surrounded by high peaks and forests of oak in the Natural Park of the Prades Mountains and Natural Park of the Poblet Forest.
| An area that has been nationally classiﬁed as an area of Geological interest in Catalonia. Slate, clay and limestone with rocky outcrops, cliﬀs and rugged mountains.
|Continental-Mediterranean with cool nights that allow the vines to rest. This delays the accumulation of sugars, preserves acidity and helps in the creation of aromas.

|Sustaineble dry farming, vegetation cover and responsible mountain viticulture; minimal intervention which prioritizes biodiversity.
|Harvested at the end of September, this wine bleeds off directly from the reception hopper and this free-run juice, almost without skin contact is what gives its pale, shiny colour. Must starts de-vatting and once clean initiates its alcoholic fermentation.
