Founded in 1870, Torres have been producing this wine since the 1960s. Is it rather dated – like I found Viña Esmeralda to be? No – it’s decent wine with a timeless quality to it and fairly good value. I buy it regularly in the summer and it remains popular in Spain.
Tasting notes: Pale yellow, fresh floral aromas. The parellada grape gives it a fruity (apple & citrus) taste (it’s one of the cava grapes). Unoaked & light – only 10.5% alcohol; ideal summer lunchtime wine.
