Cara Sur Tinto, rich with red fruit and balanced tannins
This hand harvested wine is a blend of Bonarda and Barbera from a single vineyard in the Calingasta Valley. The wine predominantly shows notes of strawberry syrup, almond, and cocoa with secondary notes of walnuts, cranberry, and baking spices. The palate is rich with red fruits and strong tannins that lead to a full bodied finish.
The Cara Sur wines are made in a tiny winery next to Pancho and Nuria’s home where they produce small quantities with partners Sebastian and Marcela, using minimal intervention. The quartet are producing some of the most unique wines from one of the most underrated microclimates of Argentina. Cara Sur translates to South Face and refers to the more challenging approach to Cerro Mercedario one of Argentina’s tallest peaks, which can be seen from Barreal.
