Torres Forcada 2016

Penedès, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainForcada is an ancestral white variety rescued from oblivion by the Bodegas Torres's project to revive ancestral varieties, which began over thirty years ago. More importantly, it has shown a natural resistance to the progressive rise in temperature, drought and various diseases. As Torres says, it makes “them part of a current reality that already looks towards the future in terms of climate change.” Forcada was found in the northwestern part of the DO Penedès, in the foothills of the Roca Forcada Mountain. It grows well in the region's clay soils at some 450 meters above sea level. The nose offers intense aromatic notes and freshness with a citrus, floral, herbaceous palate and firm, bright acidity: a stylish seafood wine and a new direction for Spanish white wine.Tasted: 30 July 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: QC 60.00 SAQ Producer: Miguel Torres SpainDistributors: Dandurand
