Details

The freshest wine produced by Bodegas Numanthia, Termes is a single varietal, terroir-bound Tinta de Toro.

This Spanish red wine is made from low-yielding, 30 to 50-year-old vineyards located at an altitude of 700 metres above sea level.

Meticulously harvested and selected, the destemmed grapes were fermented for 7 days with 2 daily pump-overs.

After that, this red wine from Toro was macerated with the skins for 21 days. Then it was aged for 16 months in 20% new and 80% 2nd year French oak barrels. During the process, it was drawn off every 4 months.

This intense Tinta de Toro wine will improve in the bottle until 2023-25.

Decant Termes 2015 from the DO Toro 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine Termes has a very bright, intense, high cherry-coloured robe with a purple rim.

Nose

Fresh, juicy aromas of redcurrants, cherries and raspberries, combined with notes of lavender, undergrowth, dry earth and violets. On the background, this Tinta de Toro has some resounding mineral undertones and touches of spices, aromatic herbs and eucalyptus.

Palate

Elegant and powerful, with a muscular body that doesn't show even a hint of flabbiness. Spices, blue flowers, blackcurrants, smoke, underbush and mineral suggestions. This wine by the Numanthia winery has a vibrant acidity, delicious tannins and long, balsamic finish.

Our personal opinion

The worthy younger brother of the mighty Numanthia and Termanthia, Termes 2015 is a great value from Toro. Nice combination of boldness and freshness.

    It's terrific!! The concentration is lightened by a yummy acidity and some chewy tannins. Pleasurable until the end.
