About the Wine
This excellent white wine created by Torres originates from Catalunya. Available in 75cl bottles, supplied by Fells. Viña Esmeralda is a delighful wine, made from Syrah grapes. This screwcap wine is made with added-sulphites. Light and grapey flavours, great with fruity and lighter Asian inspired dishes.
Gewürztraminer is a very distinctive aromatic variety. It's often full bodied, almost oily in texture with typical tasting notes of lychees and rose and can be spicy. Sometimes off-dry it can make a delightful wine match to Asian foods. However, high alcohol can be common and too much spice can clash.
With almost 200 varieties of grapes in the muscat family, the biggest characteristics is its regional nuances and flavours.
