Perpetual has been created in homage to the old "vinos de guarda", wines capable of defeating time and therefore suitable for laying down. Howewer, Perpetual already reveals its elegance and harmony today and is notable for its great aromatic complexity. After the success of Torres' first Priorat wine, "Salmos", the family decided to make a flagship wine for the Priorat winery that would show its commitment to the area.

Perpetual is a wine born of time and the land. Old Garnacha and Carinena vines planted on steep slopes of "licorella" slate form the essence of this wine from the Torres family estate. After a long ageing process, kept for 16 months in fine-grained French oak barrels, the bottles are finally laid down in the darkness of our small El Lloar winery until the desired balance is achieved. Perpetual is a homage to the Priorat wines made to be cellared. An intense wine, full of character, that was born to conquer time.

Very dark, intense ruby colour.

An aroma of preserves (cherry, blackberry) and spices on a highly characteristic mineral base.

On the palate it has great volume with an admirable balance between the wine's fruity density and its spicy notes acquired through ageing in new oak (cedar, toast).

During its prolonged, complex finish there's also a hint of chocolate and tobacco.

Excellent with game, lamb stews and also with pressed cheeses such as Manchego, Roncal or Mahones. Serve at 16-18deg C.
