Torres Fransola 2018

The best wines are made by listening to nature. This is why, more than 20 years ago, Familia Torres picked the exceptional enclave of Fransola, a historical estate in one of the highest areas of the Penedès, to plant one of our most celebrated vineyards. The cold nights and mild days provide an excellent winegrowing climate that produces exceptional Sauvignon Blanc grapes, which are used to make this elegant and balanced wine.
