Torres - Viña Esmeralda 2005
The Torres family surname features in Catalan history since the 17th century. Today our family owned vineyards amount to 1,300 hectares, among the best terroir in the region.
The use of modern viticultural techniques, the preservation of traditional methods and a desire not to use chemical products have contributed to the success of Torres.
White Wine by Torres from Spain. In the mountainous area of the Upper Penedes the more delicate and aromatic white grape varieties are grown. Moscatel and Gewurtztraminer form the basis for Viña Esmeralda, an exceptionally delicate and strikingly fragrant wine. A voluptuous, exotically perfumed nose, with deliciously well-defined primary aromas (some floral notes, roses, lilies...), complemented by secondary aromas derived from the wine's controlled fermentation. Silky and sappy on the palate. Excellent with shellfish (a sublime match for an avocado and shellfish salad, for instance), as well as with fish, fresh melon with cured Spanish ham, pates, poultry or pork in a sweet and sour sauce.
