Characteristics of Fredi Torres Priorat Classic

Fredi Torres Priorat Classic is a red wine produced by Fredi Torres in D.O.Q. Priorat.

Fredi Torres is a curious and tireless oenologist. After leaving his career as a DJ, he decided to recover his Iberian roots. His parents were dedicated to farming and fishing in Galicia, and after studying viticulture and wine making in Switzerland and going through the best wineries in Burgundy, Argentina, South Africa and Priorat, it was in this last region where his first project with his Swiss partners started in 2004. This project was called Saó del Coster.

It was in 2013, after leaving Saó del Coster, when he acquired his first vineyards in Priorat. At the same time, he began his collaboration with the brothers Carlos and Juan Rodríguez in Ribeira Sacra under the name of Sílice Viticultores.

Currently Fredi Torres also works on different projects in the Montsant with Frenchman Antoine Touton, and in Conca de Barberá, with Marc Lecha.

Fredi Torres Priorat Classic is a wine made with Carignan, Grenache, Syrah and Maccabeu from vineyards planted on terraces on slate (licorella) soils, cultivate biodynamically.

After the manual harvest, the grapes go through the alcoholic fermentation with a gentle maceration in the search for a light extraction. 80% of the wine rests for 10 months in stainless steel deposits, while the remaining 20% ​​is aged in new French oak barrels.

Fredi Torres Priorat Classic is a deep, complex and elegant wine. The aromas of red fruit and mineral notes stand out above the light toasted notes of the barrel. In the mouth, it is intense but easy to drink, with a long and fresh finish.

Tasting notes Fredi Torres Priorat Classic

The Priorat region was marked by heavy drought and heat. Following an autumn and winter with normal temperatures and rainfall, spring began with an abnormal drought and high temperatures. Flowering was successful, occurring before the expected date, but the rains didn’t come. During the summer the high temperatures continued, and the lack of rainfall resulted in the earliest harvest in history. In general, the wines of this vintage are noted for their concentration, being less pronounced in wines produced with local varieties such as Grenache or Cariñena. Perfect for enjoying young, and with a medium aging capacity.
We present the new 2016 vintage, characterised by the wettest winterin the last five years. Not only did it rain in winter, but there was also wet weather up until summer arrived, especially inMarch and April. In summer everything changed, and it was one of the driest inhistory, with only 28 litres being recorded between July and October.If we compare the temperatures in 2012 and 2016, the 2016 crophad to endure a much colder winter than in 2012, which turned outto be positive, since the frost cleared the fields ofvine parasites. During the spring, lower temperaturesthan in 2012 were also recorded.Due to all these climatic conditions there was a delay insprouting, which began on March 28th, and which led to a delayin flowering of between three and four weeks.Once the summer arrived, the Priorat got all the luck, sincethe rains disappeared, while in the rest of Europethey were incessant. It was something that nobody expected considering thewinter we’d had. Taking into account the delay insprouting, the harvest started around mid-October on some ofthe estates.Obtaining fresh wines with an extraordinary acidity is dueto this long duration of the grape in the strain that has so characterisedthis vintage.
