This comes from 1.9 hectares of old vines planted in one of the first known properties in the village of Porrera, on a slope (a traditional \"coster\"), where the plants only get the morning sun, and the altitude (500 meters) and the constant wind in the zone result in a particularly fresh wine. I didn't have the time to visit the vineyard as I had planned, but I added it to my priority list for the next time I cover the region. This has been taken as a personal project by Miguel Torres Maczassek, who is very keen on the vineyard and the wine. Despite the heat of the early summer, the grapes for this 2016 were harvested quite late, on October 28, as the ripening in this cooler zone was quite slow and long, and they were exactly on the average of rain and temperature, so a \"normal\" year. The grapes were exceptionally healthy, and the wine, which is a blend of 60% Cariñena and 40% Garnacha, achieved 14.5% alcohol with a pH of 3.22 and a little over six grams of acidity (in tartaric)—really healthy parameters. When I last tasted this—as an unbottled sample—I mentioned that the wine was the most elegant and balanced I had tasted from Torres in Priorat and among the best from the different regions where they work, and the bottled version has only confirmed those sensations. I think pricing has gotten a bit out of hand, though.

The house was established in 1870 by Jaime Torres Vendrell. Torres gained much of its traction overseas in the 1940s when the French wine industry was unable to export because of German occupation during World War II. The United States became the major destination for Spanish wine. The brand had a further boost when its 1970 Torres Gran Coronas, made from young vines growing in Penédes, won at the World Wine Olympics, a blind tasting organized by Gault \u0026amp; Millau in 1979. The success of Torres is such that its vineyards have been visited by two generations of Spanish kings, and after several years in the top five, it was named the most admired wine brand in the world in a poll of hundreds of industry professionals. Bodegas Torres now makes and sells millions of cases of wine a year, up from hundreds of thousands in the mid-1990s, and exports to more than 140 countries. The company produces wine from both DOCa regions Rioja and Priorat, and in multiple DO regions including Penedès, Ribera del Duero and Rueda. Torres has had particular success with three wines: Viña del Sol, a white made from Parellada and Garnacha Blanco, Coronas, a blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon from Penèdes, and Sangre de Toro (bull's blood in Spanish), a blend of Carignan and Garnacha. Torres also now includes a rosé made from Tempranillo, Grenache, Syrah and Carignan, and a white made from Parellada and Grenache Blanc, under the Sangre de Toro label. The company has expanded outside of Spain, looking for new markets and opportunities. The fourth generation, Miguel Torres Carbó, established the Bodegas Miguel Torres winery in Chile in 1979. In 1982, Carbó's daughter Marimar Torres established Marimar Estate winery in California. Most recently, Torres ventured into China in 1997 where it established its own bottling and distribution plant to have more control over the sale of its wines in this burgeoning market. Torres continues to experiment with planting vineyards in China but has yet to produce any wine.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-01-10T17:31:56-05:00","created_at":"2023-01-07T05:26:27-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_Spain","LK0601","Other_Wine","Producer_Torres","Region_Penedes","Source_Bestofwines1222","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_\tGrenache","Varietal_carinena"],"price":69999,"price_min":69999,"price_max":69999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42668529057930,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2016 | Torres | Mas de la Rosa","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":69999,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/24_f1ae8dda-5b51-407c-99a9-43a5be2c25b1.png?v=1673087252"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/24_f1ae8dda-5b51-407c-99a9-43a5be2c25b1.png?v=1673087252","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2016 | Torres | Mas de la Rosa at CaskCartel.com","id":23924424835210,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.755,"height":613,"width":463,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/24_f1ae8dda-5b51-407c-99a9-43a5be2c25b1.png?v=1673087252"},"aspect_ratio":0.755,"height":613,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/24_f1ae8dda-5b51-407c-99a9-43a5be2c25b1.png?v=1673087252","width":463}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2016 | Torres | Mas de la Rosa\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe Mas de la Rosa 2016 reveals gorgeous notes of ripe and spicy black plums and chocolate on the nose.
