Miguel Torres Chile is the Chilean arm of the family-owned Spanish winery Miguel Torres, who were among the first foreign wineries to set up a base in Chile back in 1979. It has always been seen as a pioneer in Chile, first by bringing modern winemaking techniques to the country and, more recently, by exploring old vines in long-neglected areas of the centre-south area, like Maule and Itata, and also by pushing back the viticultural frontiers even further south into Patagonia. Miguel Torres Chile is based in Curicó, although it has vineyards in other regions and also buys in grapes from growers in several regions. The company’s own vineyards are certified organic and the company also holds Fair for Life certification and has a policy of maintaining good, long-term relationships with its grape suppliers.
This might be Chile’s best sparkling wine, made entirely from País, the so-called Mission grape. It’s well balanced, with strawberry, raspberry, nectarine and plum aromas. It feels surprisingly elevated and classy, expressing a range of fruits, including cherry, cantaloupe and plum. — Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast
