Full of big fruit flavours and mandarin zest - this Torres scores every time. It's the Parellada grape that gives this big Spanish all-rounder the lashings of sun-kissed fruit flavours all wrapped up with a citrusy finish. Enjoy with paella. 

More about this product;

Wondering how this wine gets its exciting mix of banana, pear, apple and peach flavours with a mandarin zest twist? Then let us explain. The Torres family has been making wine for more than three centuries when their ancestors settled in Spain's Penedes wine land during Phoenician times. But it was in 1962 when Miguel A. Torres had just finished his winemaking studies and started fermenting parellada grapes at low temperature, that the first Viña Sol came into being. The result was an elegant, intense wine with big floral scents and lashings of ripe fruits combined with delightful touches of citrus. It's a spot-on choice for a dinner party; it's brilliant as an aperitif on its own and superb with rice dishes, seafood and fish.

History
Catalonia is one of the oldest winemaking regions in the whole of Europe, dating back to he time of the Phoenicians who arrived on the Iberian Peninsula long before the Romans. Food and wine culture goes hand in hand here; Catalan cooking is all about fresh produce, including fish which goes perfectly with this wine. The soil here is predominantly limestone, which is perfect for viticulture. White grapes dominate, with Cava grapes Parellada, Xare-lo and Mcabeo being the most planted.
Regional Information
In 1962, having just completed his winemaking studies, Miguel A,. Torres used a small winery in the Penedes mountains to ferment Parallada grapes at a low temperature and so Vina Sol came into being.
