Despite its unmistakably Mediterranean name, Ginesta ("Ginesta" means "Broom"), belonging to the Microcuvées collection, is not made from Mediterranean grapes.
On the contrary, this organic Spanish white wine by Parés Baltà is a single varietal Gewürztraminer.
This middle european grape, however, has adapted impressively well to the Mediterranean terroir of Penedès.
The grapes used to produced this rare wine (production is limited to 4,000 bottles per vintage) come from organically and biodynamically farmed vines located at an altitude of 540 metres.
Soils are composed of rocks and sand. This, together with the mild climate, brings an extraordinary aromatic quality to the grapes.
Traditionally vinified, this young white wine from Penedès by Parés Baltà was fermented in stainless steel tanks for 14 days.
