The Old World Torres knowledge has been used in the New World in Chile to great effect for some time now, with their main brand of Santa Digna. But the Old World just brought out something new from the New World. Try saying that quickly!
Its Torres Hemisferio Cabernet Sauvignon and Torres Hemisferio Sauvignon Blanc and the wines are really really well worth the normal full price tag of £ 8-49. Don’t choke on your wallet though ……. Read on!!!
The initial release stock is available at £ 5-99, and I can’t imagine it ever being at that price again. I also can’t imagine you finding a better wine available at £ 5-99 anywhere, don’t even think that your supermarket “1/2 Price NOW £5-99” wine will come anywhere close to the quality of this wine.
If you want to read up on the tasting notes, or buy, just click on the wines above. I’ve included the full pre-amble that Torres give on the wine, including the fact that they love Penguins (who’ve adapted specially to their delicate environment), are saving the planet and aspire to world peace!!! They dedicate 2 paragraphs to this, and 1 paragraph to the tasting notes!!?? Actually they didn’t mention world peace ??? HAHA. I guess world peace has lost its place?
Some time ago Oz Clarke checked out Torres full range of wines. He was impressed long serving brands, such as Sangre De Toro, Vina Sol, Vina Esmerelda etc were still proving to be great wines and superb value.
I was very fortunate to spend a week with Torres on their annual “Torres Experience” course, I think it was the 19th running. The family impressed me a lot, in that a huge company like Torres had a very good “family” feel about it, the staff were superb, knowledgeable and all long serving But most important they had maintained their passion, enthusiasm, innovation and determination. The Torres family hosted the event extremely generously with their time and in all facets, and with at least one family member dining with us every night it was a truly brilliant experience. We had 3 long lectures on wine by Miguel Torres and his daughter who ran the technical wine making end of the business. We tried every single wine they produce, including the brandy and desert wines. They managed to convert me to enjoying brandy, you should try their brandy, pound for pound delivering great brandy, and winning very prestigious awards. (if you are interesting in getting their brandy contact me through the website and I’ll give you the information personally)
We’ve always been a great supporter and fan of Torres, stocking an impressive range of their wines…we’ve got ‘em all, well pretty much!
