Bright & Creamy

This wine is hand-harvested before a light pellicular maceration of 4 hours, the grapes are gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel vats for 18 days at an average temperature of 16 °C. After fermentation, the wine remains in contact with the fine lees from the fermentation for 3 months with daily bâtonnage to put the lees in suspension for several minutes a day.

A markedly varietal nose combining the ripest pear, almost candied, and banana with creamy notes from working with the fine lees in the vat. On the palate, the wine is full of freshness, giving memories of a Tarte Tatin of pears on a background of crème anglaise.

About the Winery

Parés Baltà

Parés Baltà is a family-owned winery in the Penedès region of Spain with traditions dating back to the 18th century. In 1790, the first vines were planted on the estate that now surrounds the winery. Today, however, more than 220 years later, almost everything is different.

The acquisition of the winery in 1978 by Mr. Joan Cusiné Hill, born in 1917 in Bellvei del Penedés, and the addition of the exemplary estates “La Torreta” and “Els Pujols” mark the beginning of the Parés Baltà of today. Mr. Joan Cusiné Hill comes from a family of vine-growers and, already from the age of seven, he helped his father to cultivate the vineyards.

His son, Joan Cusiné Cusiné, started to manage Parés Baltà in the '80s and released its first still white wine, which is still produced today, “Blanc de Pacs." At the end of the 80s, the first red wine from the company was produced, and since then he has enthusiastically been attempting anything that could raise the quality of the wines.

Since 2000, the management has been in the hands of the two grandsons, Joan and Josep Cusiné Carol. They have brought new and fresh ideas into the company, but also show respect for its tradition and have guarded the heritage. The wives of Joan and Josep, Maria Elena Jimenez and Marta Casas are the winemakers and oenologists. They have continued to develop new wines and increase the focus on quality.

Today, Parés Baltà produces a wide range of high-quality wines and Cavas that have been acclaimed both nationally and internationally. Every single wine is certified organic and the vineyards are biodynamic. Always keeping quality in view, the aim is to produce some of the best and most interesting wines in the world while protecting the environment.
