Winemaker Notes & Critical Acclaim:

The larger production cuvée from Ordonez, the 2016 Tinta de Toro Tritón (100% Tinta de Toro) comes all from very old, ungrafted vineyards and was brought up mostly in used barrels. This beautifully sexy red boasts smoking good notes of ripe plums, black cherries, liquid violets, and loads of scrub brush and dried earth. Full-bodied and silky on the palate, with fine, fine tannin, it has remarkable purity, no hard edges, and enough structure to warrant another year in bottle. It’s a seriously impressive wine. - Jeb Dunnuck

Plenty of bright and attractive fruit on the nose with summer berry compote and complementary meaty and spicy oak. The palate has attractive plush sweet fruit presence in an easy-drinking mode. Drink now. - James Suckling

About The Producer:

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. Mentioned in literature by Alfonso IX (King of León, 12th c.), Juan Ruiz the Archpriest of Hita, Quevedo, Luis de Góngora, and Miguel de Cervantes. In 14th Century Sevilla the sale of any foreign wine was prohibited, save the wines of Toro. These wines were also the wines that accompanied Spanish explorers to the New World. The wine is rich and fruity, characterized by smooth, integrated tannin, and a long, elegant finish. The product of extremely dark, sweet berries. D.O. Toro was rediscovered by the Numanthia project, masterminded by Jorge Ordóñez and the Eguren family.
