The Torres family has been making wine in the ancient Catalan town of Vilafranca del Penedes, south-west of Barcelona, since the 17th Century. It is this tradition combined with innovation, dynamism and commitment to quality that has put Torres firmly on the world map. In 2010 Torres were recognised by the Drinks Business for its green credentials and awarded International Green Company of the Year.
This wine is made from grapes grown at 895 meters altitude on the single vineyard Pago del Cielo where Miguel Torres says the "vines touch the stars".
After stainless steel fermentation and partial malolactic conversion, the wine is aged for 12 months in a combination of French & American oak, of which 20% is new wood.
Luminous Morello cherry red colour with garnet highlights. Intense aromas of wild blackberries and blueberry jam with toasted and spicy notes (pink peppercorn) and exciting undertones of hot wax and exquisitely fine oak. Round, velvety and mature, it envelops the palate in its perfume.
Great with any hearty meat dish.
