D.O. Toro / Bajoz
Bajoz White has been named after the River Bajoz, which runs in the vicinity of Morales del Toro. Only the best batches of Malvasia grapes are picked out to craft this refreshing wine. Malvasia is a well-known grape variety across Spain, particularly in The Canary Islands and Valencia, as well as in Italy.
Best served chilled between 6-8ºC.
Brimming with tradition, Toro D.O. is an exciting wine region nestled in the heart of Castile and León, in the northern Spanish province of Zamora. This D.O. is next door to Rueda’s territory, and not far from Ribera del Duero and Rioja’s. It is one of Spain’s best kept secrets. Its wines inherit a long history, dating back to Roman settlements. In the middle ages, the wines enjoyed Royal privileges that allowed them to be exclusively sold in towns and cities. Even Christopher Columbus is said to have taken the wines of Toro on his expeditions to America. Toro qualified for the Denominación de Origen status in 1987. With its ancient vines, it is certainly one of Spain´s most promising regions for the production of red wines of impressive quality.
Pale yellow with greenish tones. It displays intense fruity and floral aromas of pears, dry petals and fine herbs. Smooth, tasty and fresh on the palate.
Recommended for seafood or fish.
This minority grape is harvested in early October. Fermentation takes place at 14- 16 ºC in stainless steel tanks to maximise its aromatic potential and character. The result of this wine making process is a fresh wine with subtle acidity.
