Miguel Torres

The Torres vineyards in Chile have grown from an initial purchase in 1979 of the Ahrex family estate, comprising one hundred hectares of vineyards and a winery. Attracted by the special climatic conditions of the Curicó region of Chile, Torres has since purchased more and more vineyard in Chile to cope with demand for his very pure, varietal wines. He now owns some 330 hectares of vineyard located around Curicó and spread across three, climactically diverse vineyards. The company continues to expand and has just purchased an area of slatey vineyard around Empedrado, 180km south of Curico. Torres was the first major foreign investor to see the potential for creating quality wines in Chile and has, in many ways, acted as the catalyst for the astonishing development of the country’s wine industry.

Tasting Notes

A pale pink colour - very inviting. The nose is forward and developed, showing nice cherry and strawberry characters with a balance of steel and cereal. The palate is firm and dry with a qunching acidity and freshness, yet there is a degree of sweet ripeness here that makes the wine appeal to a much broader audience.

Food Matches

Works very well with baked fish, salads, cool vegetarian foods such as terrines, pates and light pasta dishes.
