Red Wine Hisenda Miret 2017
Availability: In stock
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.
Aerate Hisenda Miret 2017 at least 20 minutes before drinking.
This subtle, exquisite Grenache from Penedès belongs to the Microcuvées collection of the winery.
The red wine Hisenda Miret has a bright, clean, crimson red colour with violet edges
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 organic Grenache from Penedès is wonderfully lively.
Showing a delicacy and a smoothness characteristic of the variety, this red wine of the Parés Baltà winery 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 2017 is a treat. Very limited production.
