Torres ‘Mas La Plana’ Cabernet Sauvignon – Penedes 2013 (Magnum – 1,500ml)

RM972.0

In this small (29 ha.) vineyard, planted between 1964 and 1966 in the Mas La Plana estate in Penedes, only the most-select Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown. These are used to make strictly limited quantities of Torres’s most prestigious red wine, now known to connoisseurs all over the world. In the Paris Wine Olympiad, the 1970 vintage triumphed over some of the most famous wines in the world, including Chateau Latour. This success has been repeated on several other occasions, with Gran Coronas Mas La Plana notching up numerous other international awards. After harvest, the wine is aged during 18 months in French oak barrels (85% new oak).

The wine has been finding its style, and in the 2000s, they believe they are finding it through more elegance and less extraction, with fruit and more integration of the oak, leaving the initial model of Bordeaux, or later in Napa, and now admitting that it’s a more Mediterranean expression of the Cabernet.
It’s vibrant, tasty and lively, with focused and clean aromas and flavours and polished and elegant tannins. It has a tasty, long finish, lifted by the freshness and a chalky, mineral, almost salty touch. This feels long-lived through balance and good acidity.

Description

The Torres surname has been linked to wine for more than three centuries, when the family first planted vines in the Penedes. Since it was founded in 1870, Bodegas Torres has combined tradition and innovation with the aim of leading the premium quality wine and brandy sector. In doing so, the company has always carried out its work with the utmost respect for the environment, lead by the 5th generation of the family.

Right from the beginning, exports have been one of the main pillars of the company, and nowadays Torres wines can be found in more than 150 countries. Thanks to countless effort to have Spanish world recognized, Familia Torres has been named Europe’s most admired brand for nine years by beverage magazine Drinks International and Miguel A. Torres is one of the few Spanish producers to have been named Decanter Man of the Year.

The Torres family’s philosophy of winegrowing begins with respect for the land. “We live from the earth and we are a family-owned company, so this combination leads us to care for our land and resources — not just for this generation, but also for future generations”, says Miguel A. Torres. Torres completely avoids the use of chemical treatments, replacing them with biological alternatives, following the viticulture traditions of Torres’ ancestors.
