Characteristics of Rotllan Torra Reserva

Rotllan Torra Reserva is a red wine made with the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cariñena and Garnacha Tinta varieties by Rotllan Torra in the D.O.Q. Priorat.

The Rotllan family, wine distributors in Penedès, came to the D.O.Q. Priorat just before the Denomination really took off. They began making their first wines in 1984 in the town of Torroja del Priorat (Tarragona), in some original facilities used by the 17th-century Scala Dei Carthusian monks. Now, Rotllan Torra wines are characterised by their classic and bold Priorat personality.

Each of the varieties that make up Rotllan Torra Reserva come from the winery's own vineyards, which are over 25 years old and planted in the characteristic licorella soil terraces of Priorat. The harvest is carried out manually into small boxes and the grapes are selected in the field itself.

Once the clusters reach the winery, they are destemmed and placed in stainless steel tanks. The must is macerated and fermented at a controlled temperature between 24 and 28ºC. Rotllan Torra Reserva rests in American oak barrels for 24 months and in the bottle for a further 24 months.

Rotllan Torra Reserva is a red wine that maintains the power of the Cabernet, Cariñena and Garnacha Tinta varieties with the warmth of the barrel.

Tasting notes Rotllan Torra Reserva

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.
A year with a very good balance. This vintage was characterised by the absence of water stress for the plants. Winter and spring were favourable in terms of rainfall and temperatures were slightly higher than usual. At the time of budding, there was no rain, so the vines developed in a suitable manner. The flowering took place in a clean way and the Grenache vines settled in an excellent way. Summer was characterised by cool and dry days, but also humid, which led to good photosynthesis and growth of the plants. During the end of the summer, before the harvest, there was still some humidity, which preserved the freshness of the soil and, consequently, achieving a gradual ripening of the grapes, perfect to retain the aromas and the good acidity. The negative factor was the rain during the harvest days. In short, the vintage has been somewhat atypical for Priorat, with wines that are less voluminous than in a normal year in the area, but with a good acidity that is reflected in the wines and that will keep them optimal for many years.
Rotllan Torra Reserva 2013 is a mellow red wine with aromas of ripe black fruit, mixed with smoke on a vanilla and balsamic background. On the palate it is deep and full-bodied with a lingering finish.
Sight Deep dark cherry colour with maroon edges. A clean and bright wine with a high layer and plenty of tears. Nose A wine with a high aromatic expression. First, a great load of wooden notes are released along with great toasted aromas and many spicy hints. When it opens up, notes of juicy and meaty very ripe black fruit are noticed along with creamy touches of spices and some subtle balsamic and liquorice hints. Taste Powerful wine, but with a soft, velvety and delicious mid palate. The balanced and harmonious notes felt on the nose are noticed again along with its sweet tannins. Bulky and well bodied wine with a good accidity. Long finish and great persistence.
Sight High layer, where garnets dominate a clean background and bright. The tears invade the crown, announcing potential alcoholic and smoothness on the palate. Nose The nose presents in the first instance, the best of new oak: toast with spicy background notes. The late fruit under the wood and is reminiscent of ripe berries mixed with raspberries and blueberries. High Expression aroma in a wine that evolves in the glass slowly, gradually showing its spicy aromas, its powerful but well-integrated oak, his notes of ripe red fruit and some notes of licorice. Taste Moderate acidity, power all the brilliance of a round and well structured wine on the sweet, velvety tannins that make the passage through the mouth is smooth in its initial phase and a long elegant finish. Very pleasant in the mouth, soothing, silky, very persistent, with a long aftertaste that leaves the palate impregnated with a complex range of flavors that invite you to drink.
