Perpetual has been created in homage to the old ‘vinos de guarda’, wines capable of defeating time and therefore suitable for laying down. However, Perpetual already reveals its elegance and harmony today and is notable for its great aromatic complexity. After the success of Torres’ first Priorat wine, “Salmos”, the family decided to make a flagship wine for the Priorat winery that would show its commitment to the area.
Crafted from a blend of old vines Carinena and Garnacha, and aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels. Very dark, intense ruby colour. An aroma of preserves (cherry, blackberry) and spices on a highly characteristic mineral base. On the palate it has great volume with an admirable balance between the wine’s fruity density and its spicy notes acquired through ageing in new oak (cedar, toast). During its prolonged, complex finish there’s also a hint of chocolate and tobacco.
Best pair with lamb.
