Torre Solar Macabeo

Literally meaning "the most wanted", Vinos Mas Buscados is a collection of wines grown and nurtured in the Southern half of Spain, mainly in the area known as La Mancha.

Inspired by Spain's largely untapped fine wine resources, friends, colleagues and Masters of Wine, Fergal Tynan and Giles Cooke, (wine makers of Thistledown, our favourite Aussie winery) set off on a journey to find the unsung heroes of Spain, be they regions, growers or winemakers. Fergal's interest in wine terroirs and Giles' instincts for flavour, led them to unearth great Spanish wines whose stories were untold. Each wine is hand made. Each wine reflects the personality of the land and the subtle imprint of man in varying degrees. Now encompassing the terrific value of Centelleo, Torre Solar and Castillo del Moro, Vinos Mas Buscados is a reflection of all that is best in modern Spanish wine making.

Vinification

Kiwi know how makes it to La Mancha. Carefully harvested and cold soaked with small amount of skin contact with only free run juice and no pressings used. Inert gas treatment and cool fermentations using a variety of selected yeasts to gain texture mouthfeel and structure. Partial oak fermentation and extended lees contact to give weight texture and savoury notes while blending in the fruit driven components to give a diverse old world wine with a new world twist.

Tasting Notes

The suggestion of ripe pineapple, lemon and lime on the nose explode on the palate combined with crisp, refreshing acidity and a long mineral finish.

A good match for roast chicken, fish in a cream sauce or even on its own!
