The grapes of this organic Spanish white wine come from 2 estates located, respectively, at 690 and 500 metres of altitude, in an area belonging to the DO Penedès.
Handpicked and destemmed, the two grape varietieswere separately vinified.
Cold-macerated for 4 hours and gently crushed, both wine juices were fermented at a low temperature for 12 days in stainless steel tanks. Afterwards, Parès Baltà Còsmic 2018 remained in contact with its lees for 3 months with daily stirrings.
Clean and bright, Parés Baltà Còsmic has an elegant, pale yellow colour with some bright green tinges.
This blend of Xarel·lo & Sauvignon Blanc is highly aromatic. Ripe pineapple, medlar and passion fruit, along with notes of citrus, apricot and white flowers. This organic white wine suggests some creamy remembrances resulting from the lees-ageing process.
The entrance of this white wine from Parés Baltà is clean and juicy. The palate is full of fresh fruit, with some hints of white flowers over an underlying layer of mineral and salty notes. This white wine from Penedès has a light body, a fresh acidity and a surprisingly long finish that elicits remembrances of tropical fruit.
|Our personal opinion||
Made from a blend that works very well, Parés Baltà Còsmic 2018 is great with Japanese food, rice dishes, salads and fish recipes.
