“Made from vines that were planted in 1900; fermented in small, open-top stainless steel tanks, with malolactic fermentation and 22 months of aging in new French oak barriques, this wine is inky ruby. Smoke-accented cherry, black raspberry and candied licorice on the explosively perfumed nose. Plush, open-knit red and blue fruit liqueur, vanilla and floral pastille flavors display a peppery nuance and gain vivacity with aeration. Spicy and broad on the strikingly persistent finish, which shows alluring sweetness and just a hint of fine-grained, harmonious tannins.”
Vatan is the pure representation of the oldest clone of Tempranillo in Spain, from some of the oldest ungrafted vines in the country, located in the only Spanish D.O. that completely resisted the phylloxera plague. During the Middle Ages, Toro was Spain’s most famous winemaking region. D.O. Toro was rediscovered by the Numanthia project, masterminded by Jorge Ordóñez and the Eguren family.
Our team says that this wine is not for the faint of heart! It’s the polar opposite of shy and retiring.
