The Gran Viña Sol Chardonnay from Miguel Torres shines in a bright straw yellow with greenish-golden reflections in the glass. The nose is full of an elegant, opulent bouquet with fruity notes of ripe apples, pears, peaches and floral aromas of lime blossom and the characteristic hint of fennel (aniseed).
The palate of the Gran Viña Sol expresses balance, complexity and softness with plenty of elegant fullness. Gentle vanilla notes dominate the taste and recall the short maturation in oak barrels. A silky and persistent finish with a delicate balance of lush melt and fresh acidity crowns this dry white wine.
Vinification of Miguel Torres Gran Vina Sol
The two grape varieties Parellada (15%) and Chardonnay (85%) are vinified separately. After cold fermentation, a small portion of the Chardonnay is stored for five months in new French Limousin oak barrels. The rest of the Chardonnay and the Parellada variety are aged in steel tanks. Shortly before bottling, the two grape varieties are combined.
Food recommendation for the Gran Viña Sol from Torres
We recommend this delicious Spanish white wine from Catalonia with fish, oysters au gratin, paella with seafood, turkey meat, chicken, salads with cream dressing or fine cream cheese.
