Deep black cherry colour with notes of fresh red and black berry fruit. A well-balanced and structured wine with a medium to full body and a pleasant, succulent finish.

Toro appellation covers approximately 5,600ha of vineyards at an altitude of 600-750m above sea level. The region produces red wine across the spectrum from Joven to Gran Reserva, but all grades must be made from at least 75% Tinta de Toro (the local name for a clone of the Tempranillo red grape). The best reds tend to contain 100% Tinta de Toro and are robust, concentrated and well-structured.

Made from from Tinta de Toro as are the many appellations of Spain‘s and Portugal‘s top red wines based on an equal number of obscure local grapes. What do the Tinta Roriz of the Douro, Aragónez of the Alentejo, Ull de Llebre of Penedès, Tinta del Toro of Toro, Cencibel of Valdepeñas and Tinto Fino in Ribera del Duero have in common? They‘re all genetically the same grape. Thought to have existed in Northern Spain since antiquity, it is there making up the blends in almost all of the Iberian Peninsular‘s great red wines, even to some extent, Port. As Rioja is Spain‘s most successful liquid export, it is understandable that their name for this ubiquitous variety is the one the world has become familiar with. The name comes from its ripening habits; Temprano means ‘early‘, as Tempranillo tends to beat the other Rioja black grapes to the winery by around two weeks. Its thick skins give wines deep colour and longevity, but it doesn‘t race to high levels of potential alcohol like many of its Spanish peers. With an appealing range of uncomplicated flavours and an affinity with oak, it is rapidly being eyed by winemakers in other warm parts of the world, particularly Australia.
