2013 Torres Coronas Cabernet Tempranillo
Born in 1865, Juan Torres Casals represents the second generation of Bodegas Torres. A fighter with a vision for the future, he registered the Coronas brand on February 7th, 1907, thus creating a wine that made history in Spain.
Grape Varieties: Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Winemaking: 10 days of skin contact. Fermented for 1 week in stainless steel tanks at 25-26ºC. Aged for 9 months in American and French oak.
Weather Conditions: Although the year was generally rainy, the vegetative cycle was dry, especially the ripening period. Winter and summer were mild, with a rather cool August and September. Slow, regular ripening and a slightly later-than-usual harvest.
Tasting Notes: Magnificent dark ruby red colour. Intense aroma of black fruit (cherries) and spices framed by a delicate note of toasted oak. On the palate, it is elegant and serious with fine, velvety tannins thanks to oak ageing.
Serving Suggestions: Pairs perfectly with meat, creamy cheeses and traditional paella. Serve at 17–18ºC.
Stored under the right conditions, the wine will hold its potential for the next: 5-8 years.
