Winemaker Notes

This wine takes its name from the walls that protected the monastery at Poblet during the Mercenary Wars. The unmistakable identity of Grans Muralles is thanks to the stony, slate ground (Licorella) of the region, and the grape varieties believed to be extinct, such as Garró an Querol, using modern viticultural techniques. Together with Cariñena and Monastrell they create the unique spirit of this wine.

JS 95
James Suckling
Very deep and complex nose of wild berries and herbs. In spite of the enormous concentration and the sweetness from super-ripe fruit this has good balance thanks to the great tannins. An excellent Mediterranean wine that will live for decades.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The superb red blend 2010 Grans Muralles is a multi-grape mixture of Garnacha Tinta, Monastrell, Querol, Cariñena and Garró grown on slate soils in the appellation Conca de Barberà, in the vicinity of the Poblet monastery, which is surrounded by walls that name the wine. It's a dark, concentrated and closed red with a clear Mediterranean profile slowly revealing aromas of esparto grass, tree bark and a rustic, somewhat dusty touch that coats the ripe black fruit. It matured for 18 months in new French oak barrels and it's still not oaky, but the palate reveals some spicy flavors and some pointy tannins that should polish with more time in bottle. A very good showing for Grans Muralles.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Torres launched Grans Muralles in 2006, an effort to recover old grapes from near extinction. It includes varieties such as querol and garró, which they blend with monastrell, garnacha and cariñena. In this latest release, Muralles maintains an imposing style, the wine’s superripe fruit and chestnut flavors impacted by its powerful tannins. Still youthful, this needs at least five years in the bottle to fully develop.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This blend of Carignan, Garnacha, Monastrell and several other local grapes opens with gritty, cheesy aromas of oak, tar and asphalt along with savory berry fruits. A saturated, dense palate weighs in as heavy and thick, tasting of reedy berry fruits, roasted plum, savory spices and grilled steak. A blackened, oaky finish is a touch syrupy in feel but quite deep and long. Drink through 2023.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
This plump red is tender yet deep, with cherry, currant, vanilla and spice flavors that are fresh and harmonious. Notes of licorice and mountain herb add interest, while sweet-tart acidity keeps this lively. Cariñena, Garnacha, Querol, Monastrell and Garró. Drink now through 2022.

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
