This is indeed a tempting Tinta de Toro. Great find!

Meg Houston Maker

Hi, Jennifer. This is indeed a worthy find. We purchased it a while ago from Gary's (http://www.garyswine.com/), and I just re-discovered some information about it (see http://www.thinkglobalwines.com/bodega03/bodega03.html). The vines are about forty years old and very low-yield, with only two or three bunches per vine. The fruit is hand-harvested, sorted and de-stemmed, then placed whole, without pressing, in 7,000 litre stainless tanks. The winemaker keeps the fermentation temperatures low using dry ice. It goes through malolactic fermentation in French oak, then is aged in French oak for a year.
