Professional Wine Reviews for Triton Tinta De Toro Tempranillo 2014

Rated 90 by Robert Parker
A more substantial and intense wine is the 2014 Triton Tinta de Toro. This is from a fabulous appellation in Spain, which deserves more and more attention for the high-quality wines emerging from there. Yields were 0.81 tons of fruit per acre from the sandy, alluvial, gravel soils. The wine was aged in one- to three-year-old Burgundy and Bordeaux barrels for six months prior to bottling. This is beautiful and a great value from Ordoñez. It is a dense ruby/purple with a sweet kiss of crème de cassis, roasted meats, steak tartare, and a touch of licorice and underbrush. The soft tannins and fleshy, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel offer substantial flavor and intensity for this price-point. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.

Additional Information on Triton Tinta De Toro Tempranillo 2014

Winery Triton

Varietal: Tempranillo

For millennia, the Tempranillo grape varietal has been esteemed and revered by winemakers in their native Spain. These grapes are packed full of intense and fascinating flavors, often rewarding wine drinkers with notes of tobacco, leather, plum and herbs alongside their spicy and full bodied character. Their thick, black skins result in their wines being very deep red in color, and often high in tannins. As such, Tempranillo grapes are usually blended with other fine varietals to produce exceptionally balanced and delicious blended wines, such as those found in La Riot and other important wine regions around the world. Despite them being a notoriously tricky varietal to grow, their popularity continues to increase, and winemakers continue to impress the world with this excellent example of a red wine grape.

Region: Castilla Y Leon

The ancient, arid and beautiful region of Castilla y Leon is the largest in Spain, and amongst the largest single 'regions' in any country of Europe. It has been famed throughout the centuries for its architecture, its people, its art and literature, and not least for its characterful and flavorful wines, which capture the beating heart and passion of Spain and Spanish culture. Castilla y Leon is essentially a vast plateau, and is extremely dry, with a poor soil structure which one might think would make viticulture difficult, if not impossible. However, Castilla y Leon has plenty of native grape varietals which are able to stretch their roots deep underground, to tap into the moisture and minerals which can be found there.

Country: Spain

From the deep and intense Rioja wines, or the dry and refreshing Ruedas, from Tempranillos to Verdejos, the range and quality of Spanish wines is always going to impress and fascinate. With several thousand years of traditions and expertise leading the way, Spanish wineries are currently producing some of the most flavorful and interesting wines to come out of Europe, striving to overcome the reputation problems the country suffered in the mid to late twentieth century. Despite being one of the largest producers of wine in the world, with billions of bottles being filled each year, Spanish wine producers are more interested in quality over quantity than ever before. The results of this are some truly world class wines rivaling even the finest produce of France in regards to balance, character and flavor, gaining new fans and enthusiasts every day.
