Over many years having experimented with old Chilean and Spanish vines of different varieties in order to produce this wine. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Tempranillo and Monastrell form the basis of the wine, which is aged for 24 months in new Nevers oak barrels.
Beautiful pale cherry colour. Exquisite, fresh tasting wine with notes of fruit (raspberry and cranberry) and flowers (violets).
Voluptuous on the palate with fine acidity, fruit notes appear that combine with the wine's pleasant texture.
Excellent as an aperitif and the perfect accompaniment for pasta with meat or tomato sauces and certain vegetables....
'Torres Chile - Conde de Superunda 2010 6x 75cl Bottles Deal' priced at £177.47 => Click for Deal
Deep magenta. The bouquet opens heady, becoming brooding, with forest fruits and a herbal, bramble edge. Very elegant, structured and long. The palate is all dark berry and chocolatey, flowing to a tapestry of flavours and textures interwoven with surprising smooth tannins, elegance and length. It is at once rich in flavour yet light in weight - a beguiling contrast making for appealing drinking now, yet should age well for up to a decade.
