Parés Balta Blanc de Paco Penedès 2018
Parés Balta is an organic and biodynamic winery in the Penedès region, a short 30 minute ride from Barcelona, Spain. One of my most favorite wineries from that region, the beautiful estate has been making wine since 1790, and today brothers Joan and Josep Cusiné are running the winery, with their wives Maria and Marta as head winemakers.
This electric wine is a blend of the three traditional cava grapes, Parellada, Macabeo, and Xarel-lo, but in s still style.
Clean, bright and concentrated citrus fruit with an incredible acidity, steely minerality and great intensity of fruit. The wine remains a little plump on the palate, creating a smooth and delicate texture to balance that wonderfully high acidity. Crisp intense lemon, lime, and concentrated pear notes with a touch of floral nuances. The wine finishes quite nicely with a hint of chalkiness and salinity. This would pair nicely with any seafood or fish dish, especially oysters. This wine is ready to drink. Crack it open and enjoy!
