Gran Elías Mora 2014 is a mature, powerful wine with a lot of personality. On the nose, aromas of fresh black fruit fused with toasted and balsamic notes stand out. In the mouth, it is intense and complex, with a wide range of flavours, where we can find prevailing black fruit and floral notes, as well as elegant toasted notes with sweet tannins.

Gran Elías Mora is a red wine produced by Bodegas Elías Mora in San Román de Hornija, D.O. Toro.

 

Bodegas Elías Mora is a winery that was founded in 2000 by two Victorias (Victoria Benavides and Victoria Pariente) who chose to make high-quality wines since the very beginning in D.O. Toro. Currently, the winery is directed by Victoria Benavides, one of the most notorious women in the Spanish wine scene.

The vineyards of the winery Bodegas Elías Mora (the name of the former owner of these vineyards), located amidst the Duero and the Hornija rivers, planted on calcareous soils with surface gravel and poor in organic matter, are cultivated in a traditional way, with low yields. These vineyards are planted with pre-phylloxera Tinta de Toro vines. Therefore, they have not been grafted.

All of this allows Bodegas Elías Mora to make wines with the utmost quality, from local vineyards that show all the character and the tradition of a historic wine area in Spain.

 

Gran Elías Mora is a wine that is only made in great vintages, with Tinta de Toro from a vineyard that is over 70 years old, located on the farm Senda de los Lobos.

After a manual harvest in 20-kg boxes, with a careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard and the winery, they go through a pre-fermentation maceration for 3 days. For the fermentation, there is a seeding with selected yeasts, and a fermentation in stainless steel deposits. Once the malolactic fermentation has ended in these deposits, it is aged for 17 months in new French oak barrels.

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.
