Grape varieties: Mainly Parellada and white Garnacha.
Story: “During the early 1960s, after completing my viticulture and enology studies in France, I wanted to put into practice what I had learned in Dijon. At a small winery in Pontons, a mountainous area where the nights are very cold, I first fermented grapes at a low temperature to obtain a fresher and more aromatic white wine. This fortunate discovery provided the basis for what is now Viña Sol, which we continue to make with utmost care to this day, half a century later.”
- M. A. Torres.
Weather Conditions: The year was quite dry during the winter and vegetative period, particularly in the Penedès region. The winter was mild, and temperatures in the spring and summer were normal. September started out rather warm, but cooled down as the month wore on, experiencing sporadic rainfall, which aided the maturation of late-ripening varieties.
Tasting Notes: Clear bright gold colour. Crisp with fine citrus (lemon) and wild floral (broom) aromas. Clean, savoury palate with delicate fruit acidity.
Serving Suggestions: Excellent as an aperitif or served with rice dishes, seafood or fish. Best served chilled at 10ºC.
Cellaring Potential: Stored under the right conditions, the wine will hold its potential for the next 2 years.
