Very light and fresh, with the aroma of peach and strawberry, and lemon and pear taste in the mouth. Very good for the money. Enogastronomy: bruschetta with fresh herbs
Very dry and light. Fragrances of soft stone fruits on the nose, peach, apricot and minerality on the palette, nice stonefruit finish. Does not need to be too cold to enjoy.
Four and a half glasses
Made from the trio of "cava" Spanish grapes: Xarello, Parellada, and Macabeo. This is a fine white wine, meant to be drunk young (finally, something I don't have to cellar!). Nicely aromatic, with medium acidity. At about $10/bottle, it is a fantastic every day drinker.
External Reviews for Parés Baltá Penedès Mas Petit
Penedes, SpainPares Balta Blanc de Pacs is a delightfully refreshing white wine from the Penedes region in the northeast of Spain, just west of Barcelona. Pars Balt is a family owned winery in the Peneds region with a tradition that goes back to 1790. The vineyards have been certified organic since the 2004 vintage. This Spanish white is a blend of 42% Parellada, 25% Macabeu and 33% Xarel.lo, the typical blend for making a sparkling Cava. According to the importer, Bryce McNamee of rising-star Boutique Wine Collection, the Xarello gives the body, Macabeu the fruit and Parellada the delicate freshness and floral notes characteristic of the highest mountains in the Penedes. Josh Raynolds for Stephen Tanzer rated the 2008 vintage of this wine 89 points. No ratings yet on this new 2009 vintage, but we find the way it drinks on a warm summer night is a true wine gem! Pares Balta Blanc de Pacs is soft yellow-green in color with medium body. It has an enticing nose of ripe pear and apple with a light floral background. Dry, crisp and bright, this wine has rich flavors of apple, honeydew, peach and mineral notes. It is fruit-forward and nicely balanced, with a clean finish of tropical fruits. The grapes are handpicked and fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then bottled young to retain its bold fruity flavors and freshness. This is an organic wine.Enjoy Pares Balta Blanc de Pacs as the perfect summer apritif wine and with oysters, filet of sole, grilled shrimp, paella, and summer salads.
