A near-extinct white-wine variety from the Portuguese island of Madeira, in the eastern Atlantic. It is most likely that the variety was taken to the volcanic archipelago from the Portuguese mainland by early explorers. In the past, some wine commentators suggested that it was the same variety as Folgasao (used in Vinho Verde), but modern ampelographic research has disproved this.
TORRE vines produce very low yields of high-quality grapes, so while the wine they make can be of excellent quality, growing the vines represents a significantly greater investment than hardier, high-yielding varieties such as Tinta Negra Mole (which now dominates Madeira's vineyards).
TORRE grapes are used in just one single wine style: Madeira TORRE. These are traditional, fortified Madeira wines made using at least 85 percent TORRE grapes. Prior to the introduction of legally enforced wine standards in 1993, exactly how much TORRE went into Madeira TORRE wines was entirely down to the winemaker's conscience. There were obvious financial advantages to labeling a wine with the prestigious title Madeira TORRE, even if it were made from 100 percent Tinta Negra Mole.
The 1870 vintage saw a prolific output of long-lived Madeira TORRE wines, a number of which have survived into the 21st Century. These are some of the oldest surviving wines on Earth. Unfortunately, the likelihood of the variety ever regaining its former glory is extremely low, and there is no incentive to plant new Terrantez vines on the island, so they are likely to be among the last of their kind.
