INFORMATION OF INTEREST Grans Muralles 2010
Colour: Intense deep red colour with a purplish sheen.
Aroma: Aroma of exotic and profound complexity showing the wines 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.
Taste: 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.
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).
The unmistakable identity of Grans Muralles is found in the stony slate soils (Licorella), but also in the varieties that make it up. After a century of the phylloxera plague, the Torres Family managed to recover extinct autochthonous varieties such as Garró and Samsó using modern viticulture techniques. These varieties together with Garnacha tinta, Cariñena and Monastrell make up the spirit of this unique wine.
