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 soil is poor and of volcanic origin, giving the wines a strongly mineral character. Passionate dark ruby red in colour, Salmos is round and mature, but also floral, with a spectrum of fruit ranging from black cherry to plums and dried fruit. French oak provides the framework for an elegant midpalate, with perceptible, but delicate tannins and a toasty finish reminiscent of cocoa.
