Torres ‘Gran Muralles’ – Conca de Barbera 2015

RM545.00

SKU:
SPW067210

This wine takes its name from the walls that protected the monastery at Poblet during the Mercenary Wars. he unmistakable identity of Grans Muralles is thanks to the stony, slate ground (Licorella) of the region, and the grape varieties used to make it. One century after the phyloxera plague the Torres family have begun to recuperate autoctonous grape varieties believed to be extinct, such as Garro and Samso, using modern viticultural techniques. Together with red Garnacha, Mazuelo and Monastrell they create the unique spirit of this wine, aged in new French oak (Tronçais thin grain) for 18 months.

Warm and compact full-fruit aromas are spicy, creamy and integrated, with nothing held in reserve. A huge palate stampedes with grapy blackberry, ripe plum and burn. There’s power and some fiery aggression to this Catalonian classic, with chocolaty oak settling in alongside flush berry power on a loud finish.

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.

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.
