Bodega Miquel Jane, Que Se Sepa in D.O. Penedes

285/365 – Catalonia – D.O. Penedes – Guardiola de Font-Rubí – Bodega Miquel Jane – Blanc Baltana 2012

Que Se Sepa……..,

blanc-baltanaBlanc Baltana 2012, 50 % Macabeo, 35 % Parellada and 15 % Sauvignon Blanc.

Pale lemon colour. Expressive aromas of fresh peach, pear, mango, floral notes and a touch of smoke and spice from the oak. Fresh and silky texture, with flavors of green apple and stone fruits. Balanced, with complexity and enveloping after taste. The first thing I noticed was pear and apple, but then as it progressed it was a bit complex, showing a tropical background. When it won temperature it got easier to notice some smoky flavours, typical of ageing, presumably it has to do with parts of the Macabeo being aged on oak. The palate is very structured, with density, with a smooth and refreshing finish. Not very powerful but quite persistent.

In the heart of Penedès, you will find this bodega and its vineyards. The bodega owns its vineyards, split between two different parts (Cal Costas and Baltana) and is situated in Font-Rubí (province of Barcelona). The vineyard represents 51 hectares under production and has the capacity to increase it up to 150 hectares. The plots are situated at 500 meters of altitude, ensuring a day/night temperature contrast which is necessary to get a full development of the grapes and a good concentration of aromas. It will bring out well balanced aromas of ripe fruits with nice fragrances and acidity. In these wines you can appreciate the geographic nuances of each plot. The different soils and microclimates give each wine its own personality. The wines are part of the appellation, Denominación de Origen Penedés.
