Torres Gran Coronas Reserva is normally a blend of around 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Tempranillo from the Penedes wine-growing region of Spain.
The Torres family has been making wine in the ancient Catalán town of Vilafranca del Penedès, south-west of Barcelona, since the 17th Century. It is this tradition combined with innovation, dynamism and commitment to quality that has put Torres firmly on the world map. In 2006 Torres were awarded European Winery of the Year in Wine Enthusiast’s Annual Wine Star Awards. Torres Gran Coronas arose from the innovative drive of Miguel A. Torres, who planted the French variety of Cabernet Sauvignon in the Penedès region at the end of the 1960s and early 1970s, when normal practice was to plant local white varieties. Thanks to this, Gran Coronas has become a benchmark for reserva red wines from Penedes
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2019 (2015 Vintage)
"Gorgeously ripe and inviting, the impressively complex bouquet shows dark plum, tobacco, cedar, charcuterie and dark mushroom characters, leading to a concentrated palate that is richly textured and persistent. It is plump and fleshy with loads of delicious flavours, firmly structured by chalky tannins, making it sensually appealing. At its best: now to 2025."
