Characteristics of Torres Waltraud
Torres Waltraud is a white wine from D.O Penedès, produced by Torres. This winery is a monovarietal of Riesling.
Torres Waltraud is born from the best grapes of Riesling, one of the most aromatic grapes that evolves like this elegant and fruity wine.
After arrival to the winery, the grapes are fermented. The must for Torres Waltraud is produced in stainless steel containers at a temperature inferior to 20ºC.
Torres Waltraud is dedicated to the mother of Miguel Torres, Waltraud Maczassek. The grape variety, Riesling, originates from Germany, but is perfectly adapted to Penedès: exactly like Waltraud Maczassek.

Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
Bodegas Torres is a family business of several generations dedicated to the production of wine and brandy in the Penedés, and they now have an extensive range of products which are exported to more than 140 countries worldwide.
