Mas Irene 2017

An organic merlot wine, concentrated and voluptuous with a view to the future

To make this great red wine we have chosen the merlot from the Cal Miret estate for its voluptuousness and concentration in jam. The small percentage of cabernet franc rounds off its coupage, giving it greater structure and ageing capacity.

Like all the women in the family, the eldest daughter of Joan and our winemaker María Elena, Irene Cusiné, also has a wine named after her. Mas Irene is dedicated to her, and to all women who, like her, forge the path they desire by overcoming obstacles and pursuing their dreams.

Microvinification. Mas Irene is only made in the best vintages.

Tasting Note

Sight

Intense garnet colour with a high black robe. The colour of the disc does not yet show signs of evolution.

Nose

Great intensity and complexity on the nose with aromas of candied red fruits well blended with a touch of high-quality toast.

Mouth

In the mouth it is smooth and oily, with wonderful amplitude and power that denotes its great structure. Intense aromas of forest fruits combined with spices and toasted notes from the barrel. Pleasant finish with a long persistence.

"Pure flavour, mineral and leafy notes. A fruity sensation that is more than original. We would even speak of inner beauty, of a blend of grapes that is sometimes fantastic and sometimes great. An essential wine".

Varieties

Made from 66% merlot and 33% cabernet franc grown organically and biodynamically on our estates in the Penedès.

Winemaking

Harvested by hand and transported in small boxes. Arrival at the winery. First a cold pre-fermentation maceration is carried out at 8ºC for 5 days to extract more colour and aroma. Then, the two varieties are fermented separately at a controlled temperature of 25ºC. Maceration is prolonged for 19 and 24 days respectively.

Aged in new French Allier oak barrels for 13 months.

Wine made with biodynamic grapes and minimal intervention in the cellar.

Vegan friendly wine.

    like many Pares Balta wines Mas Irene is a very different and special wine. It is one of the those very rare wines you drink where you can taste and smell the naturalness. Completely different from the world of dominated commercial mass produced homogenised wines. Its clean, its pure and exquisite. Very smooth dark black ink with tones of the local minerals. If you understand about good wines and have the talent to spot special local wine then you have found one here. Excellent.

    Its intensity somehow comes across unstructured and leaves one with a feeling: Ok, but could also have something else..
