The Torres family winery has written the history of Catalan wine in the last century and reached every corner of the planet. And yes, let’s admit it, we are where we are today thanks to the work started by Don Jaume Torres in 1870. Currently managed by the fifth generation, Torres produces quality wines both in Spain and abroad. It was one of the pioneering foreign wineries, setting up in Chile in 1979 and contributing significantly to developing the potential of this Andean country’s wine. Torres landed on Californian soil the 80’s with Marimar Torres at the helm. Today Torres family wines are available in over 140 countries and, along with ten other wineries, is a member of the Primum Familiae Vini international association that admits only those family wineries which have defended and promoted winemaking traditions to future generations for many years, without any outside shareholders.

Appearance

Straw yellow with steely highlights. Clean and bright

Nose

Very clean, somewhat shy. Hints of white fruits. Ripe melon, limonera pear and a slightly honeyed backdrop. Well integrated new oak notes.

Palate

Creamy with noticeably wood ageing aromas on entry. Toffee and vanilla notes. It is fresh and floral with a slightly bitter finish.

Comments

Located in the Vimbodí area in the Conca de Barberà region, this is where one of the most prestigious white wines in Spain comes from. The Chardonnay is more than at home in the Catalan Mediterranean climate. No fanfare, no excesses, but with elegance, personality and multiple nuances. A white wine fermented and aged in French oak which will improve dramatically with a few years bottle ageing. This white wine is deservedly recognized by wine critics year after year. The best food pairings will depend on the time of year, but generally speaking white fish, shellfish or poultry in a light sauce will be delicious with this white wine.
