was one of the first foreign investors to buy land in Chile attracted by the special climatic conditions of this region. In 1979 Torres purchased one hundred hectares of vineyard and a winery in the Curicó area. With him, Miguel Torres brought his family’s long tradition of wine-making and over one hundred years of company history.Miguel Torres has purchased another two vineyards ('fundos') and now owns some three hundred and thirty hectares of vineyard located around Curicó
. Over many years Torres has experimented with old Chilean and Spanish vines of different varieties in order to produce Conde de Superunda
. This is a blend of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Tempranillo and Monastrell, which is aged for 24 months in new Nevers oak barrels.
Torres Conde de Superunda is a 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.
Food & Wine match:
Excellent as an aperitif and the perfect accompaniment for pasta with meat or tomato sauces and certain vegetables. Sublime with oriental food. Serve at 8-10 ºC.
"This has character, delivering powerful currant paste, braised fig and hoisin sauce flavors laced with notes of charcoal, tobacco and hot stone. Offers a strong graphite edge on the finish too, which has some toast to shed. Dense and powerful. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Monastrell and Tempranillo. Best from 2011 through 2014." 92 Points, Wine Spectator.
