Waltraud Riesling by Torres


Waltraud is made with the best harvests of Riesling, which is one of the most highly prized aromatic varieties – and rightly so given that it is capable of producing such an elegantly sublime and magnificently fruity wine as this. Waltraud Maczassek, of German nationality, put down roots in the Penedès region when she married Miguel A. Torres. That’s why he decided to make a wine in her honour, using German varieties but planted in the Upper Penedes. The wine has a luminous gold color. On the nose reminiscent of orange blossom, jasmine, quince and pineapple. Elegant, firm-bodied and silky, with echoes of spice bread on the finish. Pairs beautifully with oysters and shellfish. Sublime in combination with fish, rice dishes, pasta with mariniere sauce, duck in sweet sauce.
