This organic white wine is made from grapes coming from a single estate, called "Can Miret", which is located at an altitude of 325 metres above sea level in the heart of Alt Penedès.
The 75-year-old vines are planted on gentle slopes oriented to the southeast. Soil is composed of clay and limestone, and climate is purely Mediterranean.
Harvested by hand and carefully selected, the grapes were cold-soaked for a brief period, crushed and then fermented in new French and Hungrarian oak barrels for 18 days.
Finally, Parés Baltà Electio 2013 was aged for 4 months on its lees in those same barrels.
Drink now until 2018.
This organic Spanish white wine has a waxy yellow colour with steely tinges.
Intense notes of white fruit, withered flowers and toast over a subtle mineral background.
This Penedès white wine form Xarel·lo has a substantial volume that is defined by flavours of jammy white fruit, dry fruit, aromatic herbs and some notes of spices. Tense acidity and long, pleasant, spicy finish.
