Description

Torres Mas Borras Pinot Noir is a single vineyard wine made from 100% Pinot Noir vines in the Penedes Denominacien de Origen of the Spanish region of Catalonia. It is one of very few Spanish Pinot Noirs.

The Torres family has been making wine in the ancient Catalán town of Vilafranca del Penedès, south-west of Barcelona, since the 17th Century. It is this tradition combined with innovation, dynamism and commitment to quality that has put Torres firmly on the world map. They remain one of the largest family owned and run wine companies in the world and, under the stewardship of fourth generation Miguel Torres they are committed to sustainable viticulture and green practices.

The Torres Mas Borras vineyard is located at 520 metres above sea level in the coolest part of the Upper Penedes area at Santa María de Miralles. At this altitude, the relatively cold summer nights allow a long and balanced ripening, which is desirable for producing elegant and noble Pinot Noir. Deep calcareous clay soils with interspersed layers of gypsum, moderately well drained with a high water holding capacity. Developed over sedimentary material from the Eocene. Thanks to the cool soils and the continental tendency of the climate, these vineyards provide the best conditions for Pinot Noir in the Penedès region. This is why Jacques Bergeret, a Burgundian expert in cultivating Pinot Noir, chose these soils in 1985–1986.

The Pinot Noir grapes for this single vineyard wine are usually harvested in late September and are macerated in the skins for 2 weeks after harvest. The wine is fermented in stainless steel with an additional malolactic fermentation in oak barrels. After vinification Torres Mas Borras Pinot Noir is aged in French oak barrels, 30% of which are new, for 9 months. Oak ageing ensure that silky tannins are in harmony with the fresh acidity and cherry fruit typical of Pinot Noir.

Tasting Notes

Torres Mas Borras Pinot Noir has a bright garnet colour. There are exciting fruit aromas (cherries in liqueur) against a backdrop of dried fruit (dried plums) and toasty notes (coffee). Fragrant, delicate tannins express the elegance of the Pinot Noir variety.

Food Pairing

An excellent accompaniment for roast meats, cooked hams and creamy cheeses. Serve at 16-18ºC.
