TEMPRANILLO PETIT VERDOT, Torre Solar, 2013

£7.75

Product Description

A succulent, juicy red bursting with ripe blackberry and spice character. Criminally drinkable, its vibrant fruit driven style and easy balance make for the perfect anytime red.

These wines were made by our own resident winemaker, Brent King. The name Torre Solar, meaning Solar Tower, draws its inspiration from the Solar Tower built on the outskirts of the winemaking town of Manzanares. At the cutting edge of experimentation in alternative energies the contrast between the old windmills and the new solar tower was more than striking. Torre Solar, contrasting but complementing the old and the new, selects out individual vineyard sites, vinifies them separately and brings them to market in a package that provides a beacon for quality in the region.
