The Story

The highland estate of Milmanda, dominated by the castle that gives it its name, is where Chardonnay finds the most favourable conditions for its development. Years of patient research have resulted in Milmanda. The complex and harmonious combination of aromas of this elegant, noble wine elevate it to truly world-class status.

Estate of origin: Milmanda (Conca de Barberà)

Appellation: DO Conca de Barberà

Grape variety: Chardonnay

Story: 1,000 years of history. Milmanda was part of a route of medieval castles that sheltered Christians during the period of the Reconquista. The 12th century brought peace to the region and with it the return of winegrowing. In the vineyards around the castle, the Torres family now grows Chardonnay to produce this exclusive wine.

Yield: 5,000 Kg/ha. Manual selection of grape clusters.

Year vines planted: 1980

Surface area: 15 ha/ 37 acres

Elevation: 500 m

Slope: 0-5%

Orientation: North-East

Soil: Deep silt-rich calcareous clay soils that are moderately well drained and have a very high water holding capacity. They encourage balanced vegetative growth in Chardonnay and produce wines that are very varietally expressive and well suited to barrel aging. Reddish marl formations dating from the Oligocene period.

Rainfall: Annual average rainfall (historical): 587 mm

Temperature: Annual average temperature (historical): 14.2ºC

Winemaking: Barrel fermented (100%) and later partial malolactic fermentation (50%). Number of days of fermentation: 2-3 weeks. Fermentation temperature: 16ºC

Ageing: Aged in 300-liter barrels (60% new oak) for 4–6 months. Followed by 10 months of lees aging in vats.
