Description
Miguel Torres makes some of the best wines in Spain. From the smallest parcels of vines that he has nurtured in previously non-existent DOs, he has brought life to regions and varieties previously overlooked, all the while making wines of superb quality. This might seem a little like a gold prospector that arrives and finds gold where no one else has done so before; however, in Torres' case we have seen his generosity and focus on quality spread to wines in all price categories. This wine is a belter for the price we pay. It has to be one of the downsides to being a major brand that people assume the quality is non-existent behind the label, as in this case the quality is very, very fine indeed. Fresh, juicy and spicy Grenache gives the wine substance, flavour and smoothness that we would normally doubt exists in such a familiar brand. It's a good lesson to us all!
