Our cooperation with Lars Torstenson started 3 years ago. Previously M. Torstenson was managing director at Rabiega wineyard in Provencewhich was at that time owned by Vin och Sprit Gruppen (Absout Vodka). He has been appointed “Winemaker of the Year” by Gourmet and “Le vigneron de l’année” by Gault Millaut. He has also received “The Golden Glass” and many other awards. At the same time he has produced award winning wines and highly ranked premium wines. These wines have all together received 200 medals.
Lars Torstenson is a globetrotting oenologue/viticulteur who works around the world: France, Spain, Italy, Bulgaria, Argentina and USA. He manages to be present everywhere and at the same time giving courses, interviews and write books!
Mr Lars Torstenson can combine his knowledge and creativity within winemaking and by this create wine and be a winedesigner. There are many factors that determine the outcome of the wine. The result depends on: the weather, care of the grapevine, late or early harvest, different fermenting methods, different qualities of the barrel and much more.
Sometimes this results in a wine with a more developed taste and pleasant scent that can be stored for a long time. Here we would like to mention some of our new versions and assortments that have these characteristics: Merlot, Grenache, Pinot Noir and Syrvia (Syrah – Viognier), Pinot Noir – Merlot. However, these wines are only bottled in small quantities, 500 to 3000 bottles and it is not certain that they are part of our selection every year.
NB: These wines are very often unfiltered to keep as much fruit and aroma as possible.
