Characteristics of Termes

Termes is a red wine produced by Bodega Numanthia, a winery located in the Toro region. 

Termes is the youngest wine of the winery and is made using only Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) grapes. The grapes are grown on vineyards which are between 30-50 years old planted at 700 metres above sea level on small plots between the municipalities of Valdefinjas and Todo, on the slopes of the river Douro.

The harvest is carried out manually when the grapes are of optimal ripness, where they pass through a rigerous selection at the vineyard.

As for the winemaking process, fermentation takes place for 8 days at a controled temperature of 26-28ºC, with battonages occuring twice a day. After, maceration takes place with the skins still intact for 21 days, with soft battonages occuring.

After fermentation, Termes is aged for 16 months in first year French oak barrels with racking occuring every 4 months.

Tasting notes Termes

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.
The 2013 vintage, rated as a very good one, began in a complicated way. In the early spring, in April and May, temperatures were low and there were heavy rains, significantly delaying the start of the growth cycle. This resulted in late flowering and therefore later ripening. Before the harvest, there was a considerable amount of rain, which produced an interspersed harvest.After a cold and rainy year, the profile of the wines they have produced are less concentrated than usual. Fresher and with a good acidity.
Sight Intense cherry color with a purple trim. Bright and with legs that dye the glass. Nose Intense aromas of fresh fruit (red currant, cherry, raspberry) very well integrated with floral (violets, lavender) and soft spicy notes and a hint of eucalyptus. Taste This Toro wine expresses the typical rich and complex flavours of the variety Tinta de Toro. The aromatic expression does not stop and has a strong presence. Silky, velvety and vibrant mid palate. After a persistent, widespread and intense attack, hints of fruit reappear with great force accompanied of spicy notes, tobacco and toasty snuff. Long and complex, very persistent.

Designation of Origin D.O. Toro

Winery Numanthia

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

Numanthia is one of the most emblematic wineries in D.O. Toro. The name Numanthia pays tribute to the city of Numancia, symbol of resistance and tenacity. 2000 years ago and for more than 100 years, it resisted the siege of the Roman legions. By choosing this name, they wanted to create a parallelism between this resistance and its century-old vineyards, which resisted the phylloxera plague that affected all of Europe at the end of the 19th century. From these vineyards they make their Termanthia, the first wine of Toro to achieve 100 Parker points.
