DescriptionThis wine takes its name from the walls that protected the monastery at Poblet during the Mercenary Wars. OriginThe unmistakeable 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 Garró and Samsó, using modern viticultural techniques. Together with red Garnacha, Mazuelo and Monastrell they create the unique spirit of this wine.Serving suggestionsPerfect with meat dishes, such as the roasts or stews typical to Mediterranean cuisine, accompanied with tomato and pepper sauces or cooked with traditional herbs and spices (thyme, oregano, rosemary, basil, bay leaf, pepper).Tasting NotesIntense deep red colour with a purplish sheen. Aroma of exotic and profound complexity showing the wine’s great density, incredibly rich body and structure. Note the hints of spices (pepper, clove), shrubs (thyme) and very ripe, small red berries (cranberry, redcurrant) over a background of smoke, vanilla and incense. On the palate the wine is a true revelation, a different style that at the same time evokes memories of other wines and other horizons. It grows as it warms up, exhibiting after a few seconds a fantastic series of flavours and memories… The dense but sweet tannins open up and once again deliver the spicy, fruity message of the bouquet and evolve in the aftertaste into a splendid finish that leaves a firm mark and a happy memory.Grape VarietiesCariñena: A classic and traditional Mediterranean variety.Garnacha Tinta: This variety is the most cultivated Mediterranean grape worldwide.Garró: This is one of the traditional Catalan grape varieties that have been recovered from near extinction.Monastrell: This variety, cultivated in the Mediterranean up to the latitude of Châteauneuf-du-Pape is also known as Mourvèdre, and it evokes its Spanish origin (Murvietro was the Roman name for Sagunto).Samsó: This red variety was recovered from Catalan vineyards and has a remarkable personality.Awards received- Anuario de El País (Spain) 2014: 98 points    Grans Muralles 2009- Proensa (Spain) 2014: 93 points    Grans Muralles 2009- Mundus Vini (Germany) 2013: Grand Gold Medal    Grans Muralles 2009- Wine Advocate (USA) 2012: 91 points    Grans Muralles 2009- Anuario de El País (Spain) 2011: Between 90-94 points    Grans Muralles 2006- Grupo Gourmets (Spain) 2011: 95 points    Grans Muralles 2006- Wine Enthusiast (USA) 2011: 90 points    Grans Muralles 2006- Peñín (Spain) 2010: 94 points    Grans Muralles 2006- Wine Spectator (USA) 2010: 90 points    Grans Muralles 2006- Grupo Gourmets (Spain) 2010: 95 points    Grans Muralles 2005- Peñín (Spain) 2010: 94 points    Grans Muralles 2005- Anuario de El País (Spain) 2010: 4 points    Grans Muralles 2005- Anuario de El País (Spain) 2009: Between 90-94 points    Grans Muralles 2004- Campsa (Spain) 2009: 96 points    Grans Muralles 2004- Peñín (Spain) 2009: 93 points    Grans Muralles 2004- International Wine Challenge (United Kingdom) 2007: Gold Medal    Grans Muralles 2004- Campsa (Spain) 2008: 96 points    Grans Muralles 2002- Peñín (Spain) 2008: 91 points    Grans Muralles 2002- Anuario de El País (Spain) 2008: 4 points    Grans Muralles 2002- Wine Advocate (USA) 2011: 93 points    Grans Muralles 2001- Wine Advocate (USA) 2008: 93 points    Grans Muralles 2001- Wine Enthusiast (USA) 2008: 91 points    Grans Muralles 2001- Campsa (Spain) 2007: 95 points    Grans Muralles 2001- Wine Spectator (USA) 2007: 93 points    Grans Muralles 2001- Peñín (Spain) 2007: 91 points    Grans Muralles 2001- Anuario de El País (Spain) 2007: 5 points    Grans Muralles 2001- Campsa (Spain) 2006: 95 points    Grans Muralles 2001- Anuario de El País (Spain) 2006: 5 points    Grans Muralles 2001- Wine Spectator (USA) 2009: 90 points    Grans Muralles 2000- Wine Enthusiast (USA) 2006: 91 points    Grans Muralles 2000- Wine Spectator (USA) 2005: 93 points    Grans Muralles 1999- Japan Wine Challenge (Japan) 2004: Gold Medal    Grans Muralles 1998- International Wine Challenge (United Kingdom) 2003: Gold Medal    Grans Muralles 1998- Wine Enthusiast (USA) 2002: 90 points    Grans Muralles 1997- Wine Spectator (USA) 2000: 92 points    Grans Muralles 1997- Wine Spectator (USA) 1999: 90 points    Grans Muralles 1996
