Torres 10 Brandy

Torres 10 Brandy

Spanish brandy at fraction of the cost of French. Click on for the flowery description I didn’t write: “…with warm hints of spices (cinnamon, vanilla).” However, I drink this almost daily. Nuff said. TWM

Torres Fransola (Penedes- Sauvignon Blanc): Wine Woman Pick

Torres Fransola White Penedes

Stunning. It’s not often that one gets to sample a Sauvignon Blanc that’s had some time in tanks maturing over it’s lees (the yeasty sediment by product of fermentation). I first took this to an event we ran in March 2012. It blew everyone in attendance away. Intense aroma of fruit and spices over a background of new oak. Fresh and lush on the palate, it’s very big with the aroma’s well-defined fruit notes (vine peach and summer melon), complemented by hints of vanilla and toast acquired during the lees ageing.

Torres Viña Sol (Parellada): Wine Woman Pick: Bronze Medal 2013

Torres Viña Sol  (Parellada)

A traditional Catalan variety well adapted to the Spain producing a wine somewhere between ‘stone-fruit’ Chardonnay & tropically crisp Sauvignon Blanc. Lovely bright yellow and green reflections. Fresh elegant fruit aroma. Fine acid structure: smooth, well-balanced palate. Pleasing fruit backdrop (green apple, pineapple) enhanced by hints of spice (fennel).
