One of our favourites in Penedès is Parés Baltà, an organic and biodynamic estate (certified Demeter), run by the brothers Joan and Josep Cusiné. But the winemakers are their wives, Elena Jiménez and Marta Casas. I fell for this wine, Indigena Garnacha 2012, immediately. It is well built, quite powerful, but balanced and even with some elegant. Deliciously juicy fruit. A really well made garnacha (grenache in Spanish).

The grapes come from a vineyard called Finca Les Torres, located high up, 616 meters above sea level, which probably explains the elegance of the wine. Fermentation is at cool temperature, 20 degrees, for four weeks. The wine has been aged for 5 months in new and slightly older French oak barrels.
