Spanish - 75cl 36% acl - Single Bottle
Known as the Estate's signature wine, Numanthia is made from ungrafted vines between 50 and 100 years-old. Low yields provide concentrated fruit of remarkable intensity and power, and careful ageing for 18 months in French Oak brings the balance and structure. Wood aromas that are perfectly integrated with sweet spices (think cinammon and nutmeg) couple with notes of berries, cedar and licorice in the mouth, closing with a long, silky finish highlighted by velvety tannins and hints of cocoa and dark fruit.
The 2010 vintage is splendid! "The 2010 Numanthia comes from a cooler vintage than the 2009. It is aged for 21 months in new French oak. The bouquet demonstrates more fruit concentration and clarity than the 2009, the 0.5% less alcohol making a tangible difference. The aromatics are more Medoc-like than the 2009. The palate is full-bodied with mouth-gripping tannins, yet it has a silky smooth texture.
There is real attack on the mid-palate, perhaps a little more vigor and tension with hints of graphite and sous-bois towards the strict finish. This is due to be launched in September 2013 and should be at the top of any Toro-lovers’ list – maybe even above Termanthia?" 94 points Wine Advocate
