Notes from the Winemaker
Rejón is the name of our best vineyard of Tempranillo located in the town of El Pego, within Toro’s appellation, the 130 years old vines are planted on incredible top layer of gravel over very sandy soils. This very limited production tries to reflect the typicity and genuineness of the indigenous grapes coming from this unique terroir. The grapes are carefully hand- picked in small baskets of 15 Kgs, fermented in small vats and moved to French oak 225 liter barrels remaining for 20 months.
Opaque purple. Vibrant, seductively perfumed aromas of blackberry, violet candy, star anise and cracked pepper. Weighty dark berry flavors are brightened by smoky minerals, picking up a floral pastille quality with air. The smooth, sweet finish repeats the dark berry quality and leaves sexy floral and mineral notes behind. This distinctly elegant wine has the concentration and balance to reward patience.
