Domaine Parés Baltà, Blanc de Pacs 2019

Our opinion : A beautiful white wine from the Penedès. Its color is a brilliant yellow with green reflections. On the nose this cuvée is fresh and intense, with notes of fruit such as pear, Golden apple, lemon, pineapple and apricot. This very beautiful white wine is easy and pleasant with a nice acidity and a smooth texture. As revealed on the nose, there are notes of apricot, lemon, but also white flowers.

The winemaker

In 1978, Mr. Joan Cusiné Hill took over the cellar. Born in 1917 in Bellvei del Penedès, Mr. Joan comes from a family of winegrowers and, from the age of seven, he helped his father to cultivate the vines and it can be said that he never stopped to work. At 80, he was still helping his grandsons take care of some vineyards.

His son, Joan Cusiné Cusiné, started running Pares Baltà in the 1980s and developed his first still white wine “Blanc de Pacs” which is still produced today. At the end of the 80’s, the first red wine was produced.

Since 2000, the management has been in the hands of two grandsons, Joan and Josep Cusiné Carol. They brought new ideas to the company, but above all showed respect for tradition and heritage. The winegrowers, Maria Elena Jimenez and Marta Casas, wives of Joan and Josep Cusiné, have contributed to consolidating the philosophy of the Estate.

The Appellation

D.O. Penedès is the largest appellation in Catalonia with more than 25,000 ha of vines. It is the first appellation to use stainless steel wine tanks and to introduce organic viticulture.

There are 3 areas: the Lower Penedès, the coastal area, which rises up to 250 meters; the Middle, the main production area, with altitudes between 250 and 500 meters; and the Haut Penedès at an altitude of 800 meters, with a small production of very high quality.

The appellation of origin Penedés benefits from a wide variety of microclimates, marked by the different altitudes and the proximity to the sea. But it remains essentially Mediterranean, soft and warm. The soils are varied and consist of sand, clay, stones and are poor in organic matter, which makes them perfectly suited to growing vines.
