Product description
Triton is made with the Tinta de Toro grape, one of Spain’s oldest Tempranillo clones that is native to the Toro wine region. The continental steppe climate combines with the sandy soil to create a terroir that is responsible for a powerful, elegant, and mineral expression of Tinta de Toro. As all of Grupo Jorge Ordóñez’s vineyards, the plots are head trained and dry farmed, without the use of herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides.

93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck     The larger production cuvée from Ordonez, the 2016 Tinta de Toro Tritón (100% Tinta de Toro) comes all from very old, un-grafted vineyards and was brought up mostly in used barrels. This beautiful, sexy red boasts smoking good notes of ripe plums, black cherries, liquid violets, and loads of scrub brush and dried earth. Full-bodied and silky on the palate, with fine, fine tannin, it has remarkable purity, no hard edges, and enough structure to warrant another year in bottle. It’s a seriously impressive wine.

92 Points - James Suckling     Plenty of bright and attractive fruit on the nose with summer berry compote and complementary meaty and spicy oak. The palate has attractive plush sweet fruit presence in an easy-drinking mode. Drink now!
