Winemaker's Notes

Fruity aroma with hints of apple and pineapple. Smooth, balanced palate with a fine acidic edge. Best served chilled.Excellent as an aperitif and acompaniment for rice dishes, seafood and fish.

Winemaker's comments: In 1954 my father, Miguel Torres, was travelling extensively, through winding mountain tracks in the quest to find the most highly-prized grapes in the region. His intention was to create a different wine, one that was the authentic expression of the character of this land. This led to the birth of "Sangre de Toro", whose name was inspired by Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, known in ancient times as "The son of the Bull". Today Sangre de Toro continues to be wholly produced at the family's winery, with the care and attention to detail that have given this great wine its fame.

for a surprising white wine. A little to much zest, with very little back end. This was a good afternoon/evening adventure. A decent wine, just not my style.
