Description
 

In this small (29 ha.) vineyard only the most select Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown. These are used to make strictly limited quantities of Torres’ most prestigious red wine, now known to connoisseurs all over the world. In the Paris Wine Olympiad, the 1970 vintage triumphed over some of the most famouswines in the world, including Chateau Latour. This success has been repeated on several other occasions, with Gran Coronas Mas La Plana notching up numerous other international awards.

The Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Mas La Plana was produced from a cool and late harvest of the vines planted between 1964 and 1966 in the Mas La Plana estate in Penedès. It matured in French oak barrels, 85% of them new, for 18 months. 2013 was a wetter year, with cooler temperatures and a longer cycle that resulted in a later harvest and wines with very good freshness. The wine has been finding its style, and in the 2000s, they believe they are finding it through more elegance and less extraction, with fruit and more integration of the oak, leaving the initial model of Bordeaux, or later in Napa, and now admitting that it's a more Mediterranean expression of the Cabernet. It's vibrant, tasty and lively, with focused and clean aromas and flavors and polished and elegant tannins. It has a tasty, long finish, lifted by the freshness and a chalky, mineral, almost salty touch. This feels long-lived through balance and good acidity. 109,638 bottles, 2,899 magnums and some larger formats were produced. In 2016 they fermented this wine in stainless steel, oak vats and some concrete, in a separate part of the winery. Wine Advocate 93+
