Product Description
Details

A single varietal Grenache, Hisenda Miret is an organic and biodynamic red wine produced by the Parés Baltà winery.

This single estate Spanish red wine is produced from grapes coming from Cal Miret, a plot within the DO Penedès located at 400-600 meters above sea level. The grapevines are planted in slopped hills with clayey soils that provide for excellent water retention.

Alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts took place in stainless steel tanks with daily pump-overs. Then this red wine from Penedès completed malolactic fermentation and a subsequent 5-month ageing period in new and 2nd year fine grain French oak barrels.

Decant Hisenda Miret 2016 1 hour before drinking.

Belonging to the Microcuvées series, this Grenache from Penedès will improve for 3 to 5 years in the bottle.

Appearance

The red wine Hisenda Miret has a bright, clean, crimson red colour with violet edges

Nose

Pleasant, authentic, exhilarating aromas of Mediterranean forest, red strawberries and raspberries, alongisde hints of blueberry jam, lilacs, and some earthy remembrances combined with notes of aromatic herbs. This Grenache from Penedès is wonderfully alive.

Palate

Showing a delicacy and a smoothness characteristic of the variety, this red wine by Parés Baltà passes through the palate leaving an exhilarating sensation. Acidity is excellent, and tannins are mild and round. The winemaking process has not been in the least intrusive, so the fruit and the terroir speak in a clear, distinctive voice. Long, complex finish.

Our personal opinion

A remarkably pure and little-known organic Grenache from the very heart of Penedès, Hisenda Miret 2016 is a treat. Very limited production.

The light-touch approach is what I like more about this wine. Oak passes unnoticed, letting the fruit do its thing. Gentle and classy. Review by Koh-I-Noor (Posted on 20/03/2019)
