Description

Miguel Torres Nectaria Botrytis Riesling is a dessert wine from the Curico Valley wine-growing region of Chile. 

Miguel Torres first acquired a small winery in Curicó, in the Chilean central valley, in 1979. It was the first foreign company to back Chilean vineyard production. After almost thirty years, those original 100 hectares have turned into 445 hectares of vineyards owned by the company itself. The excellent climate conditions for cultivating grape vines, with great temperature differences between night and day and lands free of grape phylloxera, have contributed to the fact that sublime wines are being made in lands from where one can view the greatness of the Andes, crowned by snow and a noble beauty. As of 2010 Miguel Torres Chile is directed by Miguel Torres Maczassek, a fifth generation Torres winemaker who moved to Chile with his family in order to maintain the tradition and passion for winemaking that the Torres family has demonstrated for over a hundred years.

The grapes for Miguel Torres Nectaria Botrytis Riesling are not only late harvested (Vendimia Tardia) but they are also all Botrytis affected, both of these have the effect of producing sweeter, raisined grapes than normal. Torres Nectaria is fermented in French oak barrels for 23 days and is then followed by a period of 24 months aging in first and second fill barrels.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
