Torres Milmanda 2008
Years of patient research have resulted in Milmanda. The complex and harmonious combination of aromas of this elegant, noble wine elevates it to truly world-class status.
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 the 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.
Its natural conditions along with its history and traditions make it a privileged area for vine growing and the production of excellent wines. Protected from the sea by the mountains, this designation has been traditionally known for its white wines. It is located in the southern part of Catalonia between the provinces of Tarragona and Lleida and in the basin of the Francolí and Anguera Rivers.
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 10-12ºC.
