Torres Vina Esmeralda Muscat Traminer Available By the Case Dozen Only 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This low alcohol wine is very fragrant on the nose with clear aromas of peach and elderflower and undertones of citrus. Pale yellow, very clean with grapey aromas, this is an excellent alternative for non drinkers, being fresh and bright on the palate. This is a great wine for those who want to enjoy all the tastes and flavours of wine without the alcoholic element.

  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

At 0.5% alcohol and a grand total of 50 calories per large glass this is a wine that could, if it lived up to Torres's claims, start a drinking revolution. It's for exactly this reason that I approached today's wine tasting duty (to all my fellow Snoothers, of course) with a mixture of excitement and trepidation. Pouring it into the glass, it was a lovely bright but pale gold. Very fragrant on the nose with clear aromas of peach and elderflower and undertones of citrus. On the palate it's very slightly off-dry with a lovely crisp acidity and a medium body. There's a very clear taste of green apple which leaves a refreshing sourness in the mouth after you swallow. To be honest, it IS missing something in the balance which is clearly caused by the absent alcohol. Having said that, it doesn't lose too much because of this. It's still a refreshingly crisp muscat which I'm convinced will find a niche at your average summer BBQ. If I'm driving, this will certainly be my first choice. It's head and shoulders above the other options on the market - it tastes of wine, for a start! STOP PRESS! We've just polished off the bottle, and I'm still sober. Forget about it...

After letting it breath a bit the quality of the wine enhanced and was delicious. But, what bottle of wine doesn't taste good when you get to the bottom?

I have tried a number of alcohol free wines and have always been disappointed. I must say I found this one quite excellent. It really does still taste like white wine but has almost no alcohol. I'm sure the afficianados will carp but for the average drinker who wants to avoid alcohol it is the business. If only they did a red as well ...

Hellgelbe Farbe mit grünem Schimmer. Offene Beerenfrucht mit lieblichem Touch, reife Aprikosen vermischt mit Moscato-Aromen. Im Mund herrlich süffig, wiederum lieblich mit knackiger Säure. Wunderbar ausbalanciert.

Vina Esmeralda 2009 - Miguel Torres: Vina Esmeralda 2009 - Weißwein von Miguel Torres Sicherlichist der Gewürztraminer in Katalonien eher eine exotische Rebsorte undneben Miguel Torres wird sie auch von kaum einem anderen Winzerangebaut, aber das Ergebnis kann sich sehen lassen. Ein schönesHellgelb, das von einem zarten Grün untermalt, wird leuchtet im Glas.Das Bukett verströmt intensiv fruchtige Aromen von Honig, Jasmin undPfirsich. Der Vina Esmeralda 2009ist ein ausgezeichneter Aperitif im Sommer, er passt aber auchhervorragend zu Meeresfrüchten und Fisch, leichen asiatischenWokgerichten oder zu Gerichten mit Artischoken oder Avocado.Weingut: Miguel TorresLand: SpanienRegion: Katalonien - D.O.
