Characteristics of El Primer Paso

El Primer Paso is a red wine from the D.O Toro produced by Dominio del Bendito. The winery is located in the municipal of Toro, epicentre of the D.O Toro (Zamora).

El Primer Paso is 100% produced from the varietal Tinta de Toro. Thegrapes originate from vineyards aged between 15 and 40 (60%) years of age and very old vines of more than 45 years (40%). The grapes are cultivated following ecological principals.

For production, the must is fermented and macerated in small stainless steel and concrete containers for 20 days.

After this process, El Primer Paso is aged for 7 months in French and America oak barrels, at the beginning with its lees.

Finally, before being sold, the wine rests in the bottle for 3 months.

Tasting notes El Primer Paso

This is an excellent vintage in D.O. Toro. With a somewhat particular autumn due to scarce rainfall and slightly higher than normal temperatures. It wasn’t until early January that the rainfall went back to normal.From February to March, temperatures and rainfall were normal, so the water reserves and the growth cycle began correctly.Budding and flowering were delayed for a few days due to low temperatures in May.The high temperatures start at the end of June, boosting the flowering and growth process.The summer went by without any major weather events until mid-September, when light rains and a drop in temperatures led to a slower ripening until the start of the harvest, which arrived with an optimum degree of ripeness.The wines of this vintage present a great balance between ripeness and acidity. Wines fresh in their youth and prepared to age perfectly.
This year, which was described as a very good one, started with high temperatures that did not lower until the end of November. There were also quite low water reserves. In the early spring, temperatures began to rise, leading to the first bleedings of the vines. The beginning of the growth cycle did not present any major upheavals, except for the low humidity due to the lack of rain during the winter. During May, the vines began to develop their buds, causing the flowering during the first week of June. When they started to ripen, the drought and the stress on the vines was evident. At the end of August, there a certain amount of rain helped to hydrate the bunches, which helped to collect the healthiest grapes.As a result, we have a year with wines of a concentrated profile and some acidity. Perfect in their youth and with a medium ageing capacity.
The vintage began with a rainy autumn and low temperatures that produced frost for days in a row in December. At the beginning of March, temperatures began to recover and at the beginning of April, the start of the growth cycle was already visible. Due to the persistence of high temperatures, the growth of the vines took place faster, bringing forward the flowering. In June, temperatures dropped but in July they increased significantly, causing the dehydration of some berries. In August and early September the weather evolved normally, until the arrival of the harvest.As a result, we have a year with wines of good body and acidity. Fluid wines in their youth and with a good ageing capacity.
Sight Dark purple with light purple reflections Nose Large aromatic intensity with a predominance of ripe black fruit. Vanilla and cacao notes. Taste Potent and fruity. Passing is unctuous with sensations of black fruits. Round tannins and good acidity. Very well-balanced and fresh.
Sight Intense purple with violet tones. Nose A powerful blackberry, dark fruit nose. When oxidized, it releases red and dark fruit, vanilla, cocoa, maraschino cherry and coffee aromas. Taste A palate marked by intense and deep red fruit aromas. Balanced, with firm but round tannins and a long, harmonious and relatively fresh finish.

Production area D.O. Toro

Winery Dominio del Bendito

In Toro, the red wines are mainly made with the Tinta de Toro grape variety, planted on soils of fluvial origin by the influence of the Duero River and its tributaries, grown on poor, sandy and dry soils the further away you move from the river. Toro offers powerful wines, well bodied, flavourful, complex, and tannic. Although on a smaller scale, the region also produces white wines using the Verdejo and Malvasía varieties. Since the ´80’s, Toro has experienced a revival in its wines, thanks to a new generation of highly skilled winemakers and the installation of many big names in the region, such as Pintia, a winery belonging to the Vega Sicília group, or Teso la Monja, part of Sierra Cantabria.

The winery Dominio del Bendito, born in 2004 specifically for the hand of a Frenchman, Anthony Terryon, which participates in the entire wine production process. It belongs to the DO of Toro, which for him is the best grapes in the world. Its development has ecological characteristics. The latest creation of the domain responsible for the Blessed One, and probably his most bizarre development, is a wine of straw, a white made from raisins dried on hurdles for several months. The result is a broth of great consistency, very balanced and with a perfect combination of concepts such as acidity, flavor and alcohol.
