Waltraud Riesling by Miguel Torres is presented in a shiny, bright yellow with golden shades. In the characterful, strongly pronounced bouquet, the origin and grape variety are clearly recognizable. In addition to fruity aromas of apples, peach and apricots, notes of honey leaf, some honey and hazelnut as well as delicate, spicy hints (nutmeg) can be smelled.
The characteristic aromas of apples and citrus fruits also characterize the palate. A spicy hint of bergamot and a shallow minerality expand the taste. In addition, there is a clear, giant fresh acid that is present over the entire length.
Waltraud Riesling owes his name to Miguel A. Torres' wife. As an artist, the Germans were also able to realize themselves on the label. For them, Torres may not have moved mountains, but at least vines, because he planted the Uruguegian Riesling grape variety in Spain, virtually as a companion from home.
