Parés Baltà is a family owned winery in the Penedès region of Spain with traditions dating back to the 18th century. In 1790, the first vines were planted on the estate that now surrounds the winery. Today however, more than 220 years later, almost everything is different. The acquisition of the winery in 1978 by Mr. Joan Cusiné Hill, born in 1917 in Bellvei del Penedés, and the addition of the exemplary estates “La Torreta” and “Els Pujols” mark the beginning of the Parés Baltà...
Lovely ripeness of and generous flavours of raspberry. Elegant floral scents aromas on the nose shows complex and intense fresh wild fruit. On the palate fresh red fruit dominates with a hint of exotic spices and smoky oak undertones. Well balanced, with very fine tannins and a long finish.
The grapes cultivated using biodynamic and organic practices. Once harvested they were fermented at 20º C in stainless steel tanks for 4 weeks with 3 daily pump-over’s. They were then aged 5 months in new and 2 fill French oak barrels.

If you don’t like wine, this wine is not for you. That should spell it out. The Indigena Garnatxa (or garnacha, or grenache), begins its story with organic fruit. After a simple ferment it goes into seasoned French oak for a short time to allow the wine to breathe and the fruit to sing. The result is a juicy, wild fruit nose that carries on to a medium-weight palate and right through the finish. It’s both floral and mineral and super easy to drink. Whole roasted chicken seems right here.See detailed press review
