Alongside with emphasis on tradition and quality, the environmentally respectful cultivation of the vines is key to Parés Baltà’s sense of identity. All our wines are certified as organic and our vineyards as biodynamic (by Demeter)

A blend of 57% Parellada, 25% Macabeo and 18% Xarel.lo, Parés Baltà Cava Brut is a fresh and dynamic Cava of the highest quality. Just as you’d expect from Parés Baltà. The secret is growing the Parellada grapes in the Finca Les Torres vineyard at an altitude of 616m, in the foothills of the Ancosa Mountains. The vines are also 50 years old and are naturally low yielding of high quality fruit. Macabeo brings the fruit and Xarel.lo provides the body, and together they complete this organic Cava. The Parés Baltà Cava Brut sees no oak ageing so it’s fresh as a daisy, but there is a delicious complexity derived from the 18 months it spends on its lees.

Tasting Notes: Pares Balta Cava Brut is a deliciously dry, sparkling wine made in the Champagne method yet with plenty of bright, soft fruit flavours. It has a medley of white peach, apple, pear, melon and lime fruit on the nose, with a gentle creamy smokiness from the time this Cava spent on its lees. Rich flavours of apple, honeydew, peach and mineral notes on its fruit-forward and nicely balanced palate, with a clean, tropical fruit infused finish.

Style: Organic / Biodynamic

Food Pairing: Ideal as an apéritif or with seafood or tomato based dishes
