video review: wine of the week

22nd May 2011

Torres, Santa Digna Gewürztraminer 2010, Chile
The family-owned Torres wine company from Spain was a pioneer 'incomer' to the modern Chilean wine scene, and have had a winery there for many years. This Gewürz is a very nice example of what the company does in the southern hemisphere, with its rose petal and exotic mango and lychee fruit and floral perfume, but there's a baked apple pie quality too that makes it very inviting. It hints at being off-dry, but there's so much orange and grapefruit acidity that wooshes across the tongue that it is absolutely fresh in the finish. For more thoughts, information, current stockists and food matches, see the full video review. £7.99 from a variety of independent wine merchants. See stockists at wine-searcher.
