Waltraud

SWEET RARITY  

Waltraud is the paradigm of art in wine; it not only bears the name of the woman who inspired the wine, but it also displays her work on the label. The woman in question is Waltraud Maczassek, a German artist and the wife of Miguel A. Torres, who decided to make an elegant wine in her honour using German varieties planted in Alt Penedès, particularly Riesling – one of the white varieties that is most highly appreciated for its aromatic power.

Origin

The Fransola vineyard, located in the Alts d’Ancosa subzone in the Penedès uplands, is where 25 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc are grown (used to make our Fransola wine), together with Riesling and Forcada. The vineyard stands at 550 metres above sea level, in the municipality of Santa Maria de Miralles. The combination of this altitude plus the chalky clay soil with moderate drainage and a high water retention capacity is what allows these white varieties to develop optimally, resulting in wines with great aromatic expression. 

DO Penedès

With 2,700 years of winemaking history to its name, making it the oldest winemaking region in Catalonia, DO Penedès is a broad, open appellation that stretches across a swathe of land between the sea and mountains, midway between Barcelona and Tarragona. The influence of the sun and the Mediterranean Sea makes Penedès an exceptional region for winegrowing. Its unique nature is responsible for the diversity of DO Penedès wines, with the differences in climate, landscape, and soil resulting in a thousand flavours and aromas.
