Cordillera Brut Blanc de Noir Sparkling NV, Miguel Torres
Chile / Curico Valley
Andy's Tasting Notes
Terrific value with a flavoursome and classy personality. Candied lemon, apple – light and easy drinking, but not boring! Produced by Champagne method (secondary fermentation in bottle), this is fresh, clean and elegant with an engaging fruity style.
Price per bottle £13.75
In 1979 the Torres family purchased 100 hectares of vineyard in Maquehua, San Francisco Norte and Cordillera, together with a winery in the Curicó Valley. Miguel Torres brought with him his family’s long tradition of wine-making and over 140 years of company history. The Chilean Central Valley has an ideal climate for top quality viticulture. This Phylloxera-free region is dominated by the presence of the Andes, their peaks crowned with permanent snow. The difference in temperatures between day and night provides the optimum conditions for development of the grapes and increases their ability to retain their finest aromas.
