Very pale gold. Ripe, generous nose of lemon peel,fresh citrus blossom, tropical fruit and subtle spice. There is a certain candied sweetness on the nose as well. Light and lively on the palate with plenty of bright, tart acidity. Nicely balanced with a slight, pithy bitterness through the finish. Very refreshing.

With a pale yellow hue and slight green around the rim, this wine had an open nose of white flowers, pear, grapefruit, and a slight bready note, perhaps from some lees contact. Medium bodied, with moderate acidity, the floral tones carried over on the palate, along with yellow apple and tropical fruits, a spice note that lingered throughout the finish. Fruity and plump, but with decent refreshing acidity, this wine is made from grapes that often go into Cava, but it’s floral notes and soft personality made it taste almost more like a still Prosecco.
Wine maker notes
Yellow lemon color with light green tints. On the nose intense aroma of pear and apple. In the mouth it is fresh and with a good acidity. Resulting in a soft wine, leaving an intense sensation of fruits and freshness on the finish. Serving temperature: 6 – 8° C

Producer
The roots of Pares Balta goes all the way 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. In 1978, Mr Joan Cusine Hill took over the winery in 1978. Born in 1917 in Bellvei del Penedes, Mr Joan Cusine Hill came from a family of vine growers and, already from the age of seven, he helped his father to cultivate the vineyards and never stopped working. At 80 years old he even helped his grandsons to care for a part of the vineyard. His son Joan Cusine Cusine started to manage Pares Balta in the eighties and released its first still white wine, “Blanc de Pacs” which is still produced today. At the end of the eighties 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 Cusine Carol. They have brought new and fresh ideas into the company, but have also shown respect for its tradition and 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 increased the focus on quality. Today, Pares Balta produces a wide range of high quality wines and cavas that has been both nationally and internationally acclaimed. Always keeping quality in view, the aim is to produce some of the best and most interesting wines in the world.
