Characteristics of El Titan del Bendito

El Titan del Bendito is a red wine from D.O. Toro, produced by Dominio del Bendito in the municipality of Toro, Zamora.

Dominio del Bendito is a project started by Antony Terry in 2004. Searching for the perfect location to make wines that showed the soul of the region, he decided to stay in Toro. Currently, the cultivates 14.5 hectares in this area, using organic methods and making wines in the most traditional and natural way possible.

El Titan del Bendito is a wine made with Tinta de Toro from old vineyards between 60 and over 100 years old, very poor in organic matter and with excellent drainage.

Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard and in the winery. The grapes ferment in 4,000-litre concrete deposits with epoxy resin, with a maceration of 25 to 40 days. Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels.

El Titan del Bendito is an intense, deep and elegant wine. On the nose, the aromas of ripe black fruit stand out with floral and slightly mineral notes. With an intense entry, in the mouth it is opulent and mature, with a long finish where the fruit and the minerality take the center stage once again.

Tasting notes El Titan del Bendito

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.

Designation of Origin 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.

Imágenes y situación D.O. Toro

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.
