Drink now through to 2026. Decant 1 hour before serving.

The wine region of Toro in northwestern Spain is famed for its deep, brooding red wines made with Tinta de Toro which is the local version of the Tempranillo grape. Wine has been made here since before the arrival of the Romans and these hearty wines enjoyed huge popularity in Spain during the Middle Ages.

The Triton Tinta de Toro is a perfect example of how the Tempranillo grape excels in these harsh climatic conditions and poor sandy soils. The hot summers, very low rainfall and cool nights craft a generous, full-flavoured wine which exudes dark berry, licorice, herbal and delicate floral notes. On the palate the wine fills the whole mouth with intense layers of flavour which blend harmoniously with the firm structure, ripe tannins and a rich texture.

Producer Jorge Ordonez insists on using organic farming and hand harvesting in the vineyards to maximise the quality of the grapes which go into this wine. The grapes are then vinified using wild yeasts and the wine is aged in oak barrels for 8 months before it is ready for bottling. To ensure minimal intervention with the wine, the Triton Tinta de Toro is bottled without filtering or clarifying so decanting is recommended before serving this wine.
