Boutinot ‘T’ Toro 2014

Tempranillo from Spain
Review Date : 01-Dec-2015
Very dark, deep, black-hued purple-red colour, youthful in appearance. The nose is fresh and slender in presentation with good intensity of high-toned aromas of red berry and cherry fruit entwined with herbs and lifted confectionary whole berry fermentation aromas. Nuances of savoury earth, cedar and bitter herbal detail add interest. Medium-full bodied, the palate features elegantly proportioned, rich, sweetly ripe fruit flavours of plum jam and dark red cherry fruit. The fruit is framed by fine, rainy tannin textures lending a dry textural mouthfeel, and soft acidity adds a roundness to the mouthfeel. This has good vinosity and the wine flows to a light-textured, moderately lingering finish of cherry jam and herbs. This is a rich, cherry and plummy Tempranillo with grainy textures. Match with barbecues, pizza and pasta over the next 2 years. Made by the Covitoro co-operative from 45 y.o. Tempraillo vines, fermented to 14.5% alc., 20% of the wine oak aged. 16.0/20 Dec 2015 RRP $17.90
