Winemaker Notes

Nestled among the steeps slopes of Priorat is the small mountain village of Torroja del Priorat. The wine is a blend of old vine Garnacha, old vine Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon and some Syrah. The wine has a dark and brooding color. High toned aromas of minerals and mentholated fruits give way to a palate of sweet and ethereal fruit balanced by striking mineral components.

RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A prodigious effort, the 2001 Tirant is a 9,000-bottle cuvee made from 30% Grenache (90-100 years old), 25% Carignan (90-100 years old), 25% young vine Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah, and 10% Merlot. Fermented in large oak foudres and aged 12 months in new French oak, it will be bottled with neither fining nor filtration. Inky/purple-colored to the rim, it boasts a spectacular bouquet of blueberries, blackberries, and the region’s classic crushed stone minerality. This full-throttle yet remarkably elegant 2001 possesses tremendous intensity and texture as well as layers of flavor, but comes across as not over the top, overripe, or overly heavy. The 60-second finish reveals more noticeable tannin than the other cuvees. Give it 1-2 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 10-15. The 2001 Tirant is indeed a special wine. Range: 96-98

Jeb Dunnuck
A blend of Garnacha and Carignan from 100-year-old vines, the brilliant 2001 Rotllan Torra Priorat Tirant is much more youthful and fresh than the Amadis, boasting gorgeous crème de cassis, smoked blackberries, black olive, violets, and herbed meat aromas on the nose. Intense, pure, and seriously impressive on the nose, it’s no slouch on the palate either and has a full-bodied, powerful, yet elegant feel, notable acidity, and ripe tannin on the lengthy finish. A joy to drink, this still has lots of life and should continue to shine for another decade.

Rotllan Torra Winery Image
Rotllan Torra Winery is a family company created in 1982, before the emergence of the so-called new Priorats, wines boosted by the praise of critic Robert Parker. The Rotllan family, formerly wine distributors in Penedès, moved to Priorat when it learned of the region’s amazing potential. At the time, the firm was the sixth winery in Priorat as well as the one of the first to bottle all of its production.

The main attraction at Rotllan Torra, apart from sampling the wines, is the history and architecture of the facility, built in the middle of the 17th century by the Carthusian monks of Scala Dei in a Renaissance style with Cistercian influences. From the start it was designed as a cellar, with an enormous capacity of one million litres of wine. The technology of the construction, consisting of stone and mortar and dug in the ground, provides optimum winemaking conditions, with a constant temperature and humidity, in addition to silence and darkness.

In the 20th century, after being sold, the cellar’s new private owners fitted it out with the latest technology of the period (electricity, glazed ceramic...). At the end of the 20th century, Rotllan Torra, in step with new trends, added stainless steel and wood to the facility, noteworthy for an interesting bottle cellar for 100,000 bottles in the old underground cellars, today perforated and interconnected.

In addition, the cellar houses the facilities of the Torroja cooperative, which is used as a warehouse. Rotllan Torra works with the fruit grown on 86 acres of its own vineyards within the township of Torroja (the varieties Garnacha Tinta and Cariñena, between ten and one hundred years old, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot), as well as 160 additional acres of land. The winery produces around 200,000 bottles a year, 80% of which is exported. The firm also produces Milena vinegar.
