Parellada is the finest and most delicate of the traditional Catalan wine grapes. When grown to the cool mountain climes of Upper Penedes, it yields a splendid style of wine. The process required to achieve a pure, clean and seductive style of Catalan white, just as we understand them today, proved very difficult for the old world winemakers until recent times. Torres have refined cutting edge techniques of specialized viticulture to capture and retain the unique expressions of Parellada grape in the finished wine. By harnessing the virtues of the elements, terroir and clime, harvests of Parellada are transformed by the hands of experience into distinctive Catalan wines that are wonderfully elegant and fresh.
