Along with the 2014, I also tasted the 2015 Salmos, which is from an earlier and riper year. It's a similar blend of Cariñena, Garnacha and Syrah from the same vineyards and produced in a similar way, with fermentation in stainless steel and aged in French barriques for 14 months. The wine showed more finesse and freshness than the 2014, and there is more depth and complexity here too. There are some tannins that would welcome food and/or some more time in bottle. Very tasty.

Torres has its Priorat winery in the village of El Lloar. They are purchasing more vineyards and further developing their project there. The Salmos wine is produced with purchased and their own grapes that are mostly from Porrera and Lloar. The Perpetual wine is produced from old vines (over 75 years of age). They are trying to buy these vines from Torroja, Lloar, Porrera and a little from Gratallops, as they want to increase the use of their own vineyards. One of the vineyards they liked from day one was Mas de la Rosa in Porrera, and it's a vineyard they have vinified independently in 2016. It will be their top of the range for now. They have even more plans to go further up in altitude because of climate change; they are looking for the higher-altitude zones on schist soils, and they found one in El Tossal, at around 700 meters altitude in Porrera. They have been purchasing land there and are going to start planting Garnacha and Cariñena. This is a long-term project. They are really investing in Priorat.
