Triton Tinta del Toro


This product is unavailable

D.O. Toro is located on the sandy continental steppe of the central Spanish plateau. These sandy soils are responsible for Toro’s resistance to phylloxera. The indigenous grape is Tinta de Toro, Spain’s original clone of Tempranillo. Toro was Spain’s most famous medieval winemaking region, and the wines that accompanied Spanish explorers to the New World. Triton is sourced from eight small vineyards planted between 1915 and 1962. These vineyards are planted in extremely poor sandy soils with a thin eight-inch layer of red clay ten feet below the surface, crucial for water retention. The wine is rich and fruity, characterized by smooth, integrated tannin, and a long, elegant finish.
