User Reviews for Miguel Torres S.a. Conca de Barberà Grans Muralles

Winemaker's Notes:

Description A red wine made from a selection of ancient Catalan grape varieties: Monastrell, Garnacha Tinta, Garró, Samsó and Cariñena, recuperating the most classic of styles in the Mediterranean’s thousand-year-old tradition. Origin It starts off life in a special single vineyard with slate (llicorella) soils, situated alongside the medieval walls of the Cistercian monastery of Poblet. Wine and Food Perfect 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 Notes Intense 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.
