Torres Natureo Red is a low alcohol red wine made in Spain. Torres Natureo wines are the result of much research and this wine is very much at the forefront of high-quality de-alcoholised wines available today. According to Torres, this wine has “less than 0.0% alcohol and less than half the calories of a normal wine.”
The Torres family has been making wine in the ancient Catalán town of Vilafranca del Penedès, south-west of Barcelona, since the 17th Century. It is tradition combined with innovation, dynamism, sustainability and commitment to quality that has put Torres firmly on the world map. It is no surprise that Torres Wines have been working on low alcohol wine for many years, since 2008 in fact. In 2006 Torres were awarded European Winery of the Year in Wine Enthusiast’s Annual Wine Star Awards.
Torres Natureo Red is a blend of Grenache and Syrah. After the harvest the grapes are left on the skins for two days and then undergo alcoholic fermentation in temperatue controlled stainless steel vats. After alcoholic fermentation, 5% of the blend is aged in new French oak for a short period. After this the wine then undergoes a de-alcoholisation process. Only the alcohol is removed from the Grenache Syrah blend leaving the red wine’s colour, aroma and flavours fully intact.
This wine is also vegetarian and vegan friendly.
