 Tab 2
The remarkable versatility of the Xarel.lo grape allows Parés Baltà to produce this natural, unique and amazing wine. It’s completely different from all other wines traditionally made with this grape. It was fermented and matured in amphorae which were specially made with clay from the estate, the same clay that was used for the same task by the Iberians thousands of years ago.

As is not always the case with many other natural wines, the porosity of the clay amphorae in which the Parés Baltà Amphora was fermented caused hyperoxidation, precipitating out all oxidable particles and resulted in a clean and clear wine without requiring the addition of stabilising sulphites.
