Salmos 75cl (Pack of 6). Torres



DescriptionThis 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, events which later culminated in the auctioning of church lands known as the “Desamortización de Mendizábal”. In 1996 the Torres Family began work on the planting of vineyards on the slopes strewn with the hard, black slate-like “Licorella” stone.OriginMade by the Torres family and coming exclusively from our vineyards located in the municipalities of Porrera and Lloar, Salmos is a Priorat wine that manages to achieve an unparalleled balance between power and elegance.Serving suggestionsGame and red meat dishes. Serve at 16-18ºC.Tasting NotesDark in hue and almost opaque, it is fragrant and mineral on the nose while on the palate it is luxurious and oily, but also silky and with a long finish. This darkly coloured wine is reminiscent of jam and liquorish, over a smooth spicy and toasted background, which comes from The French oak barrels.Grape VarietiesCariñena: A classic and traditional Mediterranean variety.Syrah: This variety is associated with two key regions, the Rhone Valley in France and now also as New World Shiraz from Australia.Garnacha Tinta: This variety is the most cultivated Mediterranean grape worldwide.Awards received- Grupo Gourmets (Spain) 2014: 95 points    Salmos 2011- ABC (Spain) 2014: 93 points    Salmos 2010- Anuario de El País (Spain) 2014: 92 points    Salmos 2010- The Dallas Morning News and Texsom (USA) 2013: Gold Medal    Salmos 2010- Anuario de El País (Spain) 2013: 93 points    Salmos 2010- Semana Vitivinícola (Spain) 2013: 92 points    Salmos 2010- International Wine Challenge (United Kingdom) 2012: Gold Medal    Salmos 2010- Japan Wine Challenge (Japan) 2012: Gold Medal    Salmos 2010- Mundus Vini (Germany) 2012: Gold Medal    Salmos 2010- Wine Advocate (USA) 2012: 90 points    Salmos 2010 – Grupo Gourmets (Spain) 2012: 9.25 points    Salmos 2010- Wine Enthusiast (USA) 2011: 90 points    Salmos 2009- Decanter Wine Awards (United Kingdom) 2011: Gold Medal    Salmos 2008- Wine Advocate (USA) 2011: 92 points    Salmos 2008- Grupo Gourmets (Spain) 2011: 9.25 points    Salmos 2008- Japan Wine Challenge (Japan) 2010: Gold Medal    Salmos 2007- Mundus Vini (Germany) 2010: Gold Medal    Salmos 2007 -Japan Wine Challenge (Japan) 2010: Best Spanish Wine    Salmos 2007- Japan Wine Challenge (Japan) 2010: Best Old World Red Wine    Salmos 2007- Wine Spectator (USA) 2009: 90 points    Salmos 2007- Campsa (Spain) 2009: 93 points    Salmos 2006- Japan Wine Challenge (Japan) 2008: Gold Medal    Salmos 2006- Wine Spectator (USA) 2008: 90 points    Salmos 2006- Campsa (Spain) 2008: 93 points    Salmos 2005- Wine Advocate (USA) 2008: 91 points    Salmos 2005- Wine Enthusiast (USA) 2008: 90 points    Salmos 2005- Mundus Vini (Germany) 2007: Gold Medal    Salmos 2005- Wine Spectator (USA) 2007: 90 points    Salmos 2005
