Torres Varietat Recuperada No 23 Forcada 2019 750mlAdd to Wishlist
Established in the year 1870 by the brothers Jaime Torres Vendrell and Miguel Torres Vendrell, Torres wine has transformed into the most recognized Spanish wine brand, a vast empire of vines built on winemaking excellence. Today, the family's 5th generation runs 3,200 acres of estate vineyards, spread over Spain's top DO and DOC appellations, as well as Chile, China and California. The "Forcada" bottling of Familia Torres is a rare gem, a brilliant expression of Penedes in white. This wine is made exclusively with Forcada, an ancestral grape variety of Catalonia, Spain, believed to have completely disappeared during the phylloxera epidemic. This grape, along with many other native varieties were rescued and reintroduced as a result of the pioneering work of Miguel A. Torres in the 1980's. Today, this grape is planted in deep, reddish calcareous clay soils with great water retention in the Alts d'Ancosa area of the DO Penedes appellation. This rare Penedes white wine is fermented in stainless steel and aged 40% in new oak for 3 months, 40% in used oak for 3 months and 20% in concrete tanks for 3 months.
