Torres ‘Mas de La Rosa’ Priorat 2017

RM1,371.00

SKU:
AWS417701
Mas de la Rosa is an old vineyard now owned by Familia Torres. This incomparable Priorat enclave is home to Garnacha Tinta and Carinena vines that are more than 80 years old. The exceptional Priorat terroir and a selection of the most exquisite grapes provide the inspiration for this project, a limited edition of our Priorat icon wine.

 

The vineyard is known as Coster (a Catalan word that denotes a steep slope). The soil is shallow and comprised of only one horizon, with bedrock immediately underneath (about 10-15 cm). It is relatively acidic, with low organic matter derived from weathered llicorella, a type of dark copper-coloured laminated rock. The vines spread their roots around the rocky layers in search of moisture, water and nutrients.

 

Aged in French oak barrels for 16 months, this is dense and savoury, meaty, animally nose, very fresh, light, aerated palate washed with juice, very light and fresh finish with dark raspberry notes. You expect a certain dryness of tannins in a wine so elegant but it’s fresh and mouth-watering at the end.

About The Brand

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.
