Label for Torres Viña Sol 75cl

Product Details

Tasting Notes

This wine hails from the Penedes region in north-eastern Spain, and is freshness in a bottle.

Made by one of Spain's most famous winemaking families, Torres, this is really zippy with lots of bright lemon fruit, and at under 12%
is a lighter take on a crisp, dry white.

Serve chilled as an aperitif, or with seafood.

Storage Instructions

This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 1 year

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2013 vintage, Hamish Anderson said: "Last year was the 51st vintage of Vina Sol, so it must be doing something right. On early labels it described itself as 'Spanish Chablis' (today highly illegal), which gives a good idea what it is about - fruity, with the kind of lip-smacking refreshment factor that demands a deep ice bucket and warm alfresco imbibing."

Hamish Anderson - Daily Telegraph Magazine 22/03/2014

Of the 2013 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "If you're looking for a low-priced 'house white' for picnics and alfresco parties, then dive into this innocent, citrus scented cracker. Drink it with everything - the Spanish eat all manner of tapas with this wine."

Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 07/06/2014

Background

History

In 1962, having just completed his winemaking studies, Miguel A.Torres used a small winery in the Penedes mountains to ferment Parellada grapes at a low temperature and so Vina Sol came into being.
