Crafted following biodynamic and organic methods, this blended Spanish red wine is made from Merlot - sourced from the "Cal Miret" plot, located at an altitude of 400 metres above sea level - and Cabernet Franc - coming from the "La Torreta" vineyard, at 315 metres of altitude. - Both of them are located in the Penedès region.
Meticulously harvested and carefully selected, after a cold-soaking process each variety was separately vinified in stainless steel tanks.
Then Parés Baltà Mas Irene 2018 was aged for 13 months in new French oak barrels from Allier.
After its bottling, this red wine from Penedès spent a further months in the cellar prior to being released.
The organic red wine Parés Baltà Mas Irene is medium purple with bluish tinges.
Joyful and pure, this red wine smells of red berries, flowers, violets and herbs, with an halo of red pepper and a thin layer of spices and smokey remembrances. A truly elegant blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Meaty and smooth, this wine from Parés Baltà fills the mouth with flavours of wild berries, sesame seeds, exotic spices and some hints of balsam. Well-structured, this Crianza red wine has a great acidity, velvety tannins and a long finish full of fruity and forest-like notions.
