Tálamo 2019

25.00

Description

Tálamo is a traditional reference, along with the bed frame of its label, to the place where the bride and groom celebrated their wedding. (Maybe think of this as a celebratory wine then, without thinking too deeply about bedknobs and the like.)

It’s a bed-rocking (ok, stop it now) blend of 85% Tinto de Toro (Toro’s version of Tempranillo) from century-old vines, with 15% more youthful Grenache from mere 80 year old vineyards. The wine is fermented and aged for 14 months in French oak barrels.

Deep ruby red in colour, the nose is layered with cassis, dried fruit and balsamic notes, along with wild garrigue notes of thyme, lavender, fennel, cloves and black pepper. It’s a massive wine but remarkably balanced, front-loaded with unctuous black fruit on sweet, silky tannins, richly layered with fruit, earth and savoury elements, prune, chocolate, leather, coffee bean and vanilla, all tightly interwoven.

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.
