Torres ‘Salmos’ Priorat 2015

Blended Red from Spain
Review Date : 07-Mar-2018
Full, even, purple-hued, dark ruby-red colour, youthful in appearance. The nose is softly full and voluminous with deeply packed aromas of savoury dark-red berry fruit with mulberry and plum fruit notes, entwined with complexing nuances of earth and nutty oak, Medium-full bodied, the palate is broad and mouthfilling with flavours of savoury dark-red berry fruit with mulberry and plum notes. The palate is open, but supported by grainy tannin textures that provide presence and fullness. Soft acidity adds to the roundness and richness. The fruit exudes sweetness and this carries with underlying power to a long, soft, nuanced finish. This is a full, broad and mouthfilling Priorat with savoury berry, mulberry and plum fruit with complex earthy and nutty notes and plenty of richness and structure. Match with slow-cooked game meats over the next 8+ years. A blend of Carinena, Garnacha and Syrah, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine spending 20-26 days on skins and aged 14 months in 25% new French oak. 18.5/20 Mar 2018 RRP $51.99
