Torres - Milmanda 2011-13White Wine
Available 12th Jan 2017
Milmanda was part of a route of medieval castles that gave shelter to Christians during the time of the Reconquest. In the 12th century peace came to these lands and vine-growing began anew. Today, at the foot of these castle walls, the Torres family grows the Chardonnay grape variety. This single vineyard wine is fermented and aged in French oak barrels.
The highland estate of Milmanda, dominated by the castle that gives it its name, is where Chardonnay finds the most favourable conditions for its development. Years of patient research have resulted in Milmanda. The complex and harmonious combination of aromas of this elegant, noble wine elevate it to truly world-class status.
Beautiful golden yellow in colour. Very intense, complex aroma with notes of fruit (citrus and peach compote) over a very fine background of vanilla. Oily and very big on the palate with superb acidity, pleasantly expressing the fruity notes of the aroma.
Ideal with seafood, shellfish and fowl dishes.
Serve at 8-10deg C. If properly cellared this wine will improve for 4 to 6 years.
