Tasting Notes

"If you haven't tried many wines from the Priorat region of Spain, this is a great place to start. This wine needs no coaxing out of the glass. This Spanish Crianza is savoury and juicy with great complexity and depth. Smooth and full-bodied with lusciously ripe and fleshy dark berries. The 2013 vintage of this full-bodied Spanish red wine is a blend of 35% Garnacha, 35% Mazuelo and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. This wine is matured for 12 months in American fine grain oak barrels from Tennessee and spends a minimum of another year in bottle before being released from the winery. Some vanilla spice on the finish. Decant for 1-2 hours. This full-bodied red wine pairs well with steak."

The Producer

Rotllan Torra

Rotllan Torra Winery, established in 1982, predates the rise of the ‘new Priorats,’ wines that gained popularity thanks to critic Robert Parker. Originally wine distributors in Penedès, the Rotllan family relocated to Priorat after discovering the region's exceptional potential. At the time, the winery was the sixth in Priorat and among the pioneers to exclusively bottle its entire production.

Aside from the wine tasting experience, Rotllan Torra's main allure lies in the history and architecture of its facility. Constructed in the mid-17th century by the Carthusian monks of Scala Dei, the building exhibits Renaissance style with Cistercian influences. Originally designed as a cellar, it has a substantial capacity of one million liters of wine. The construction, utilizing stone and mortar and dug into the ground, provides ideal winemaking conditions—constant temperature and humidity, along with silence and darkness.

In the 20th century, after changing ownership, the cellar was modernized with the latest technology of that era, including electricity and glazed ceramic. Towards the end of the century, Rotllan Torra embraced contemporary trends, incorporating stainless steel and wood into the facility. Notably, there is an intriguing bottle cellar for 100,000 bottles in the old underground cellars, now perforated and interconnected.

Additionally, the cellar accommodates the facilities of the Torroja cooperative, serving as a warehouse. Rotllan Torra utilizes fruit from its 86 acres of vineyards in the Torroja township, featuring varieties such as Garnacha Tinta and Cariñena (between ten and one hundred years old), as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Merlot. The winery produces approximately 200,000 bottles annually, with 80% of the output destined for export.
