Chardonnay - A grape with which young and very noble, elegant white wines with an unmistakeable aroma are produced. It is grown in Conca de Barberà, Penedès Medio and Superior.
Parellada - A traditional fine and delicate Catalan variety. It produces aromatic light dry white wines with gentle fruity aromas.
The first Torres winery was built in Catalonia and, encouraged by this thousand-year-old culture, Torres began its expansion by paying homage to the best vineyards in the world, selecting the best estates and seeking the local identify of each land.
Chardonnay and Parellada are harmoniously blended after careful fermentation of a percentage in Limousin oak barrels, thus retaining the character of each variety. The result is a magnificent, intense wine.
Gran Viña Sol was a pioneer in the production of cask-fermented Chardonnay in Spain. Its name is very apt as it's a wine of greater complexity and presence than the traditional Viña Sol.
Pale, brilliant golden colour. Floral (honeysuckle) with vegetable and fruit notes (pineapple, peach). Intense in the mouth, full bodied and spicy (vanilla), revealing its time in oak.
Excellent with fish, paellas and turkey. Serve at 11ºC.
