intense red colour of the Gran Coronas by Miguel Torres resembles that of a brick-red shimmering ruby. This Spanish red wine is vinified from Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) and Tempranillo (15%) grapes.
Aromatically complex, this red wine fills the nose with aromas of dark fruits (sour cherries, wild berries), spicy notes (black pepper, cloves) and hints of herbs and undergrowth. Gentle and full-bodied with ripe fruit and delicate, slightly earthy spice as well as clearly structured, silky integrated tannins, this Spanish wine pampers the palate. Finally, this red wine creates a complex, strong, aromatically concentrated and round feeling, followed by a long, supplely elegant finish.
Vinification of Miguel Torres Gran Coronas
First, the Tempranillo grapes are harvested. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are then harvested. In the winery, these are mashed and fermented for 7-8 days at 28-29 °C in a stainless steel tank. The ageing takes place for twelve months in French oak barrels. In the bottle, this wine rests for some time.
