When making Torres Gran Vina Sol, part of the ChardonnayåÊis barrel-fermented and aged for five months in Limousin oak barriques, the remainder being cool fermented in stainless steel. This results inåÊa rich, buttery wine. The final blend also incorporates a small proportion of Parellada which gives extra lift to the bouquet and elegance on the palate
Gran Vina SolåÊreally has put Penedes on the map as a region which produces more than just Cava. A breakthrough wine using mainly Chardonnay (rather than the traditional Parellada grape which is used in the supermarket wine Vina Sol and is 100% Parellada). ParelladaåÊbeing one of the three grapes used in making Cava.
