Torres Forcada 2016

For over 30 years, Familia Torres has been committed to an ambitious project: the recovery of ancestral varieties that had disappeared after the phylloxera devastation of the 19th century. In restoring part of Catalonia’s vinicultural tradition, the fifth generation of Familia Torres looks toward the future, seeking authenticity and producing exceptional wines that are uniquely special. Forcada is the first variety in this collection. Initially rediscovered in the Ripollès area, this white grape now grows in Alt Penedès. It is a surprisingly fresh and aromatically intense variety.
