Torres de Casta Dry Rose Catalunya 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Description A rosé wine, made from a combination of two traditional grape varieties: Garnacha and Cariñena. Wine and Food One of our most versatile wines, which goes especially well with informal food, such as pasta, vegetable dishes, picnics and traditional Spanish tapas. Exceptionally good with recipes that use tomato or tomato sauce, including Italian pasta. Tasting Notes Elegant cherry colour over a light purple background. Fine floral aroma reminiscent of flowers such as mimosa and iris, complemented by discreet fruity hints (plums, cherries). Its smooth, rich palate and delicate aromas are prolonged in the finish. Awards Gold Medal Cellars of the World (Canada) 2007 (2006 Vintage)

  Torres is one of the world’s most recognizable brands of Spanish wine and is 100% family owned. The company was founded by Jaime and Miguel Torres in 1870, and is now overseen by 4th generation wine producer Miguel Angel Torres. The headquarters of the winery is in Vilafranca del Penèdes in Catalonia, although the family controls several wineries throughout Spain as well as Chile and California. The wines range from entry level premiums, such as Sangre de Toro (the one with the little bull charm on its neck), to quality-driven mid and higher priced ranges, as well as dessert wines and brandies.    A large percentage of the Torres vineyards are organic and sustainable, with efforts to increase those numbers. They also contribute to wildlife conservation efforts with a fund to protect the Bonelli's Eagle in Catalonia and the Condor in Chile.  Read less

This brings us back to what Rosé wine should be like. I know it's mass-produced without much passion, but drinking this slightly mellow, full-bodied and fruity rosé wine, experiencing the delectable floral touch and the pleasant mellow finish just brings it all back to the point: It does not matter how this wine was made, as it is bright and easy to understand and delicious for a summer evening with tapas. Wine lover or not, you're probably going to like it. It's not complicated, it's not something to philosophize about, but it's special for being so approachable and at the same time so genuinely good. And it holds what it promises, I like the bottle and label, and it's just all fine. I wanted to dislike this wine, wanted to call it a simple wine that's mostly brand and least of all a decent wine, but it's genuinely won me over. It simply allowed me to stop 'pontificating' and start enjoying!
