Passion for Spanish wine



Esplendor Vardon Kennett 2013 Espumoso Extra Brut

Familia Torres, Vinos sin indicación geográfica

Finally, Torres’ first and very much awaited sparkling wine in Spain is not officially a Cava as the family has preferred to be able to use grapes from cooler areas outside Penedès in future vintages. I was somewhat bemused by the name, the story behind it and the fancy packaging, more in tune with a New World wine. Inside the bottle, we find youth and freshness aplenty. Fennel, fresh fruit and red berry aromas are followed by luscious, citrus flavours with good tension. 16.5 points
