"Made from 100% Tinta de Toro aged a year in used barrels (and some demi-muids), the 2017 Tritón comes from multiple vineyards and is made in decent amounts. It's a rich, powerful wine loaded with notions of blackcurrants, dark chocolate, licorice, crushed rocks, and crushed violets. It's full-bodied, has impressive depth of fruit, sweet tannins, and a great finish. It's a rocking wine that can be drunk today or cellared for 15 years or more."
The winery writes, "Triton Tinta de Toro is the pure representation of the oldest clone of Tempranillo in Spain, located in the only Spanish D.O. that completely resisted the phylloxera plague. During the Middle Ages, Toro was the Spain’s most famous winemaking region. These wines were also the wines that accompanied Spanish explorers to the New World.
Toro was rediscovered in 1990 by the Numanthia project, masterminded by Jorge Ordóñez and the Eguren family. The continental steppe climate combines with the sandy soil to create a terroir that is responsible for a powerful, elegant, and mineral expression of Tinta de Toro. As all of Grupo Jorge Ordóñez’s vineyards, the plots are head trained and dry farmed, without the use of herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides."
Dry farmed and practicing organic.
