Winemaker's Notes:

The Mencia grapes used to make this wine come from 35 pre-selected vineyards with an average age of 42 years. These grapes produce a wine of exceptional finesse and balance, with aromas of sweet and spicy wildflowers complimenting flavors of bright fresh raspberry and dark cherry.
My Notes:

About Bodegas Triton:

Owned by the Gil family, the winery is located in the village of Villanueva de Campean near Zamora in the historic area known as de la Tierra del Vino, The Land of Wine. This designation pre-dates the current designation of the nearby appellation of Toro. The region known as de la Tierra del Vino should have been included in the D.O. Toro but was forgotten when the boundaries were drawn. This region was chosen for this winery because of the unique soils, similar to those found within the D. O. Toro.
