More Info

Rejon is the name of our best vineyard of Tempranillo located in the town of El Pego, within Toro appellation, the 130 years old vines are planted on incredible top layer of gravel over very sandy soils. This very limited production tries to maintain 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 225 liter French oak barrels remaining for 20 months.

"This red is dense but focused, with ripe blackberry and currant flavors backed by cocoa and espresso notes. The firm tannins are well-integrated, while balsamic acidity keeps this focused. Heady, with a balance of fruit and savory notes. Tempranillo. Drink now through 2030. 450 cases made."

"(made from vines that are reportedly over 130 years old; fermented in small stainless steel vats and then aged in new 225-liter French oak barrels for 20 months) Inky purple. Expansive, mineral-laced aromas of cherry compote, blueberry, incense and pungent flowers show excellent clarity. Deeply concentrated but shockingly energetic dark fruit preserve, spicecake and rose pastille flavors are complicated by notes of mocha and cola. Distinctly rich and densely packed, but there's no excess fat here. The youthfully tannic, spice- and floral-dominated finish hangs on with wonderful focus and persistence."

"A rich wine with spice and dark-chocolate aromas and flavors as well as ripe fruit underneath. Outstanding concentration of ripe, black fruit with meaty, medicinal and herb undertones. Full body, firm tannins and a long, sweet finish. Better in 2018."

"Opaque purple. Potent, oak-spiced aromas of dark fruit preserves, cola, licorice and incense are brightened by a smoky mineral element. Sappy, penetrating and intensely fruity on the palate, offering juicy blackberry and blueberry flavors and a suggestion of spicecake. Seamless, sweet and extremely persistent on the finish, leaving notes of allspice and candied flowers behind. This surprisingly graceful bruiser of a wine is from vines that are reportedly more than 130 years old."
