Product Description
Details

Crafted by the Parés Baltà winery, Parés Baltà Mas Elena is an interesting Spanish red wine from Penedès.

The wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon coming from certified organic vines located in the following estates: Els Pujols, Finca Cal Miret and Finca La Torreta, at the very heart of Penedès.

Each of the three grape varieties was separately harvested and vinified. Cold-soaked to foster the extraction of colouring and phenolic compounds, subsequent alcoholic fermentation of this Penedès red wine was carried out at a controlled temperature of 25ºC using indigenous yeasts. The duration of alcoholic fermentation also varied according to the different grape varieties.

Once malolactic fermentation was completed, Parés Baltà Mas Elena 2018 was aged for 8 months in 2nd and 3rd year French oak barrels from Allier.

Nose

This organic blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot shows deep aromas of ripe red fruit, combined with delicate ageing notes, such as licorice and spices, along with some dim mineral undertones.

Palate

This red wine from Penedès of the Parés Baltà winery behaves gently on the palate. Notes of red peppers, redcurrants, some intriguing tomato hints and a layer of spices and balsam. Tannins are yummy and slightly sweet, and acidity is crisp. Long finish with some fruity and spicy remembrances.

Our personal opinion

The excellently priced Parés Baltà Mas Elena 2018 is an extremely versatile organic red wine.
