2009 Celler Pardas Aspriu Tinto Penedes
"In 1996, Can Comas estate was made up of 30 hectares of mediterranean and coastal forest and 30 hectares of grainland and pasture. In the middle of the estate there is a medieval country house with a wonderful cellar that had fallen into disuse and disrepair since the civil war. With our passion, vocation, and experience, numerous trips to investigate vine growing techniques, and after completing climate studies, grafting adaptation and varieties we planted our first stock in 1998 with special emphasis on quality control since the first day. In the following year we began grafting old vines, which were low-yielding, and stocks began to take shape. In 2004 we began cellar restorations. Finally, with the vineyards balanced, the grapes at their best and the infrastructure in place we succeeded, for the first time, in bottling the magic of Can Comas.
Born in St.Sadurni d'Anoia, Ramon Parera and Jordi Arnan, oenologist and agronomist respectively, were growing more than 40 hectares of vineyards in the Alt Penedes region when we founded PARDAS project in 1996 with the idea of elaborating the best possible wines on the Can Comas estate.
Intense cherry red color, high intensity. On the nose: Intense, voluptuous, soothing and deep. Shy at first, it opens slowly giving ripe fruit, cherries in liqueur, mandarin and chocolate, tobacco and black pepper. On the palate, wide and lush and powerful. It has a fruit tension in crescendo finally ending in a black and ripe fruit. Good tannic structure persistent. Long finish." -Winery
