Description

This Tinta de Toro is taken from the older vineyards (30-50 years old) of the small ViñaGuareña estate on the banks of the Guareña river, a tributary of the famous Douro river, in Toro. Fermented in stainless steel with extended skin maturation, the wine is matured exclusively in fine grained French oak casks for 16 months.

Deep cherry red in colour, it is a clean and fragrant wine, intense dark fruit notes combining with garrigue, oriental spices, toasted coconut and balsamic on the nose. The palate is full and ripe, with blackberries and sour cherries to the fore, dried dates, coffee and chocolate on the silky, savoury mid-palate, and ripe cherries and vanilla notes on a long, clean finish.

Enjoy with braised or roasted red meats, mushroom and rich pasta dishes or hard cheeses.

Producer: Bodega ViñaGuareña

Bodega ViñaGuareña is an 80 hectare estate, with just a quarter of that planted to vines, in a privileged valley location near the Guareña river, a tributary of the Douro, in the Toro wine region. It's all about the indigenous Tinta de Toro here, Toro's unique strain of Tempranillo, with over 90% of vineyards planted to it, some over a century old.

Munia are a range of three 100% Tinta de Toro wines grown exclusively within the ViñaGuareña estate, blended from distinct vineyard selections and aged for different periods in French and American oak casks. The wines are characterised by their powerful structure, wonderful fruit purity and varietal expression, incorporating finely integrated oak to end up with wines of impressive balance and elegance.
