The Waltraud Riesling from Miguel Torres presents itself in a shiny, light yellow with golden shades. In the characterful, strongly pronounced bouquet, the origin and grape variety are clearly recognizable. In addition to fruity aromas of apples, peaches and apricots, notes of honeysuckle, some honey and hazelnut as well as delicate, spicy notes (nutmeg) are to be smelled.
The characteristic aromas of apples and citrus fruits also characterise the palate. A spicy hint of bergamot and a shallow minerality expand the taste. A clear, riesling fresh acidity is added, which is present over the entire length.
Waltraud Riesling owes its name to the wife of Miguel A. Torres. The German artist was also able to express herself on the label. For her, Torres may not have moved mountains, but at least vines, because he planted the original German grape variety Riesling in Spain, as a kind of companion from home.
Vinification of Miguel Torres Waltraud Riesling
The grapes are harvested at the end of September. Now the fresh grapes are sorted, pressed and the must is fermented at a controlled temperature within 15 days. The ageing takes place in stainless steel tanks.
Food recommendation for the Waltraud Riesling from Torres
We recommend this white wine from Catalonia classic with fish and crustaceans, but also with fresh pasta and rice with seafood, grilled poultry or the sweet-spicy dishes of Asian cuisine.
