Description

This Wine is a homage to the monks of the courageous Carthusian order, who arrived in ‘Priorat’, in 1095, where they cultivated vines. In 1835 a violent crowd destroyed the work of a lifetime and sacked the monastery. In 1996 the Torres Family began work on the planting of vineyards on the slopes strewn with the hard, black slate-like “Licorella” stone. Salmos is born in a beautiful remote land. The vineyards, planted on slopes of shale, undergo extreme changes in temperature between day and night and these natural vicissitudes add to the wine’s appeal. 20-26 days skin contact and fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks followed by malolactic fermentation. Aged in French oak for 14 months.

TASTING NOTES

The grapes of the centenary 100y+ old vines of Garnatxa Blanca of the Benufet vineyard will display an expressive nose of blossoms and tropical fruit. The intense colour is translated in both the nose and taste. An intense and mouth-filling sensation where the careful selection adds complexity and depth, the natural freshness of the grapes adds unity.
