Tasting notes Vetus

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 dark cherry colour with high robe. Bright wine with dense tears. Nose Intense and very nice aromas. The juicy notes of red fruit give way to elegant toasted aromas and creamy spices (toffee, coffee and chocolate). A hint of candies is also felt on its subtle mineral background.
Taste Excellent, intense and bulky wine from Toro. Good velvety, very tasty mid palate in which the notes of fruit are mixed with aromas of cocoa, coffee, sweet spices and a hint of liquorice. It shows nice tannins and a long and persistent finish that leaves mellow feelings. An elegant wine with a modern style that will seduce us.
Sight

Clean and bright dark cherry colour. High robe. Good and dense tear.

Nose

Aromatic intensity. At the beginning, the notes of roasted, cocoa and coffee emerge. After swirling the glass and aerating the wine, some powerful aromas of red fruit (strawberry candy included) are noticed over a spicy and mineral background.

Taste

Too large and pleasant attack. Velvety and sweet mid palate, with lots of fresh black fruit and hints of coffee. Rounded tannins. Long aftertaste, with flavours of compoted fruit and licorice. Very nice and sensual.

Sight Clean, bright and dark picota color.
Nose French wood is noted in the foreground, with very mineral notes. After removing the glass, are notes of fruit (berries) with subtle notes of chocolate and roasted touches.
Taste Pleasant memories mouth step of red fruit and coffee. Very pleasant aftertaste final acompotado and licorice. Some astringency.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Toro

    Winery Vetus

    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

    Since 2003, Bodegas Vetus chooses to preserve the essence of Toro, at the same time as they are inspired by the discovery of new concepts, new nuances. His extensive experience in the hotel and restaurant business lead Gonzalo Antón to create a wine, Vetus, which soon became one of the most appreciated ones in restaurants. The addition of new production techniques and his desire to continue improving have drawn him towards creating his own style, which consolidated over time. Quality, the connection with gastronomy and the fondness for the land, are the main pillars of Bodega Vetus.
