Details

The Elías Mora winery is based in Toro, a region that possesses a real treasure trove of ungrafted, prephylloxeric vineyards.

Precisely, this Viñas Elías Mora ismade from some of those ancient vines.

A single varietal Tinta de Toro, the grapes were harvested by hand, destemmed, cold-soaked and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Then this Spanish red wine was drawn off and transferred into American oak barrels, where it was aged for 6 months.

Finally, Viñas Elías Mora 2016 from Toro was filtered and clarified with egg whites prior to its bottling. 

Drink this red wine from Toro from now until 2022.

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine from Toro Viñas Elías Mora has a very bright, clean cherry-coloured robe with a purple rim.

 

Nose

This expressive single varietal Tinta de Toro by Bodegas Elías Mora encapsulates the bold nature of that grape variety. Fresh, intense notes of wild berries, blackberries, violets, liquorice and roasted coffee, combined with hints of spices, cinnamon and undergrowth.

 

Palate

Bold and well-structured, this red wine from Toro has a meaty body nicely balanced by an excellent acidity and some crunchy tannins. Black fruit, raspberries, liquorice, blue flowers, spices and aromatic herbs. Long, balsamic finish.

 

Our personal opinion

Versatile and complex, Viñas Elías Mora 2016 is a truly excellent value.

    My kind of Toro!! Dark, intense, spicy, ripe tannins and a very curious remembrance of violets that I found in many Toro reds.
