Torres Perpetual 2016

Perpetual is a wine born of time and terrain. The old Garnacha and Cariñena vines are between 80 and 100 years old and grow on steep, rocky slopes. They belong to local winegrowers, but undergo rigorous controls to ensure that the fruit is of the highest quality. Perpetual is a tribute to the well-aging Priorat wines, intense, full of character and born to defeat time.

Vintage comments:
Although overall temperatures were normal in 2016, their
distribution was irregular: the year got off to a cold start,
the summer was generally normal, and the end of the
season was warm, especially the months of September and
October.
In terms of total precipitation, 2016 could be considered a
normal year. However, it is worth noting that the
vegetative cycle was dry and the ripening period, very dry.

Story: Perpetual is a wine born of time and terrain. The old
Garnacha and Cariñena vines are between 80 and 100 years old
and grow on steep, rocky slopes. Llicorella (slate) is the essence
of this beautifully concentrated wine with great personality.
The parcels are small and located near several villages of El
Priorat. They belong to local winegrowers, but undergo rigorous
controls to ensure that the fruit is of the highest quality.
Perpetual is a tribute to the well-aging Priorat wines, intense,
full of character and born to defeat time.
