Torres ‘Salmos’ – Priorat (Magnum – 1,500ml)RM515.0 This wine is a homage to the monks of the courageous Carthusian order, who arrived in ‘Priorat’, in 1095, where they introduced and cultivated vines. In 1835 a violent crowd destroyed the work of a lifetime and sacked the monastery, events which later culminated in the auctioning of church lands known as the ‘Desamortizacion de Mendizabal’. In 1996 the Torres Family began work on the planting of vineyards on the slopes strewn with the hard, black slate-like ‘Licorella’ stone. El Priorato – known in Catalan as Priorat – is a small and one-of-a-kind winemaking area with black hills where an intense, deep red wine has been produced for eight centuries. It’s renowned for its quality and exquisiteness. This wine is made from grapes mostly sourced from our La Giberga vineyard in Porrera, a scenic spot featuring terraces standing on llicorella slate soils, with strong temperature fluctuations between day and night, contributing to the allure of this wine. Crafted from a blend of old vines of Carinena, Garnacha and Syrah and aged for 14 months in French oak (25% new). Opaque, dark cherry red. Intense, concentrated. Seductively expressive fruit (jammy cassis) culminating in delicate dried fruit notes (plum) and a distinctive, terroir-imparted mineral nuance. The palate is firm, lively, flavorful, with elegant, velvety tannins. Persistent and round.
