Torres Viña Esmeralda, Cataluña 2016
An exotic, perfumed nose with beautiful floral hints, a little residual sugar gives ripeness and tropical fruit character to the palate. The finish is fresh and clean.

One of my favourite summery whites is on as good form as ever. Torres Viña Esmeralda is made from aromatic muscatel and gewürztraminer, frown in the cool of the mountains near Barcelona. All you need with a cold glass of it is a plate of garlicky, lemony hot prawns and a fresh tomato salad.
An old favourite, consistently good and ideal for when the sun shines. Terrifically grapey Moscatel with a dash of blowsy Gewürztraminer , fresh and delicate in alcohol. A sumptuous match for Asian dishes with coconut and spice.
