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.
Torres Vina Esmeralda is a white wine from the Denominacion d'Origen of Cataluyna in Spain, it is one of their most famous wines and is named "Esmeralda" after the emerald green colour of the Mediterranean.
The white grapes from this wine come from the mountainous area of the Upper Penedes where the slightly cooler climate is suitable to the more delicate and aromatic white grape varieties.
A blend of 85% Moscatel de Alejandria (Muscat of Alexandria) and 15% Gewurztraminer.
Brilliant straw yellow. Very fragrant, with delicate floral rose and lychee notes. Soft and seductive on the palate with a luscious acacia honey finish.
Sublime with seafood appetizers, fish and pate. Well worth trying with Thai food.
