Salmos Priorat 2010

Salmos Priorat 750ml 2010   
Sku: 1827569

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

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, events which later culminated in the auctioning of church lands known as the ”Desamortizacion de Mendizabal”. In 1996 the Torres Family began work on the planting of vineyards on the slopes strewn with the hard, black slate-like ”Licorella” stone. Made 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.

Tasting notes
Dark 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.

Food pairing
Game and red meat dishes. Serve at 16-18C.
