The simple but pleasing 2017 Pares Balta Mas Petit opens with a nose of soft red berry fruit and a little vanilla.
Tasting reveals a fresh and easy wine that is quite easy to drink. It features a smooth mouthfeel and a fruity character with some spice notes added in for good measure.
It ends dry and soft with decent length. Again it's quite simple but also quite pleasing.
