PostHeaderIcon Rejadorada, red wine of Toro

It was last August, when we visited the beautiful city of Zamora, where we decided to visit the city of Toro, a city that lives around the wine. Wine that has transformed the Spanish wine scene after the technique and improvement of these wines, once with lots of color and tough, but today without losing these features are more fruity and have managed to captivate the most demanding palates. 
Like most wineries are fully industrialized, we decided to visit a quaint little winery, which while not produced in these facilities, it has done and we could not find how and where you stored the wine and everything in a building of high value historical as Rejadorada. 

This winery was born in 1999 in the same XV century palace that we visited, but today in a nearby town, San Román (Valladolid) is the art facility where they make the wines that we tasted. 

Visit this winery in Toro is quite simple, any toresano tells us how to reach her on the street that bears his name Reja Dorada number 11, you reach a historic building that presents a visit to one of the caves where once was produced and stored the wine. In Toro have a variety of Tempranillo called Tinta de Toro, the climate and terrain makes producing wines with great color and rank. 

The cave has a cultural interest, as it is seen as the steep stairs and access to it was difficult and she found inside a vault that covers the roof and keeping the temperature and humidity, and through a vent all the odors and gases that caused the fermentation went abroad. There we saw a documentary history of Toro

Then we saw the room with the aromas, the anteroom where the company began developing current Rejadorada wines, then go to the store where we tasted the three red wines they produce. 

The Rejadorada is an intense red-violet blue with a step of 6 months in oak powerful and meaty. Novellum parenting is passing through our mouth with a cherry red color to evoke the passage of at least 12 months in oak, very lively on the palate with a good offense, but softened in turn leaving a balanced and persistent taste. Sango is the most old aged, an author wine produced (as above) with grapes 100% Tinta de Toro, but this old vines and a stay of 18 months in French oak barrels with an intense ruby red color, and keeping a trim garnet due to its long aging, the nose is highlighted by aromas of ripe red and black with a silky, the palate and velvety, to delight us with a long lingering aftertaste. 
A visit that we liked not having to leave the center of  Toro and gave us standing as the Colegiata de Santa María sightseeing and enjoy a good meal.
