Founded in 1870, Torres have been producing this wine since the 1960s. 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. This wine comes in a thin, light bottle which is more environmentally friendly – more producers should do this.
Tasting notes: Pale yellow, fresh floral aromas. The parellada grape gives it a fruity (apple & citrus) taste (it’s one of the cava grapes). Some tropical notes. Dry. Balanced acidity. No real length or intensity, but a little complexity. Unoaked & light – only 10.5% alcohol; ideal summer lunchtime wine.
