Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Electio is a barrel-fermented white wine made by Parés Baltà with the estate’s own Xarel·lo variety in the D.O. Penedès.

Parès Baltà is a family winery dating back to 1790. With five estates in Penedès, all lying between 170 and 750 m above sea level and cultivated with ecological methods, they produce a wide range of cavas and still wines. The winery is currently managed by brothers Josep and Joan Cusiné, and their wives, Marta Casas and María Elena Jiménez, who are both oenologists at the winery. Parés Baltà has also expanded its operation with wineries in Priorat (Gratavinum) and Ribera de Duero (Roman Domain).

Electio comes from a single plot with 74 year-old vines, lying at 325 metres above sea level and with a marked Mediterranean character. They are ecologically certified, using ecological methods like fertilising with a herd of their own sheep and pollinating with bees. Artisan work that culminates in the grapes being selected and collected manually.

In the winery, the Electio grapes undergo a light skin-contact maceration for 4 hours. The grapes are then gently pressed and fermentation takes place over 18 days in new French and Hungarian oak barrels at a controlled temperature of 17ºC. Finally, it rests on its fine lees for 4 months with periodic battonage.

Electio is a single-variety limited production white wine. This is a very elegant microcuveé made from a selection of the best Xarel·los grapes chosen from one of the winery’s exclusive plots in Alt Penedès (Barcelona).

Parés Baltà is the fulfilment of a dream of a saga of winegrowers and producers, the Cusiné family, in their eagerness to improve and create wines that capture and show the virtues of the best winegrowing areas of Penedès. Along with tradition and modernity, Parés Baltà is one of those family-run wineries that have a true passion for natural things. The cultivation of the vineyards, respectful towards the environment, is one of the maximum identity traits of this familiar winery. For this reason, their wines have an organic cultivation certificate and they are treated biodynamically by Demeter.
Pictures and situation Parés Baltà
Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
