This Tinta de Toro is taken exclusively from the vineyards 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 in a mix of French and American medium toasted and fine grained oak casks.
Deep cherry red colour in colour, with intense red and black fruit and floral notes, and hints of mint, liquorice, eucalyptus and toffee. The palate is fruity and fresh with good acidity, the mid palate concentrated, smooth and well balanced — nicely mature without being overripe — with layers of black fruit, roasted coffee bean minerality and sweet spiced notes.
Ideal to drink on its own or with lighter meats and charcuterie, pastas and cheeses.
