Description

"Full, very dark, deep, black-hued purple-red colour, very youthful in appearance.  The nose is full and well-packed with soft, plush and ripe fruit aromas of dark raspberries, blackberries and boysenberries with subtle notes of dark herbs and dark red florals, unfolding plum jam and earthy nuances.  Medium-full bodied, the palate is up-front with sweetly ripe, luscious primary fruit flavours of dark raspberries and boysenberries along with black fruit, floral and jam elements, unveiling herb and earthy detail.  The fruit forms a rounded, softly concentrated core.  The tannins are supple and provide a light, fine structure and the acidity is soft, enhancing the rounded mouthfeel.  The wine flows to a lingering, sweet-fruited finish of berries and jam.  This is an up-front sweetly rich, ripe and juicy Tempranillo with blackberry, raspberry and plum jam flavours with a soft, supple mouthfeel.  Match with barbecued fare over the next 3-4+ years.  Fruit from inland gravels sites, hand-picked and indigenous yeast fermented with approx. 30% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in new and seasoned oak." Raymond Chan, Oct 2017

"A gorgeous expression of this classic Spanish grape, the fragrant bouquet shows blackberry, raspberry, roasted beet, floral and subtle spice aromas. The palate is concentrated and silky, and delivers lovely pristine fruit flavours as well as soft spicy nuances, finishing persistent and delicately dry. A terrific food wine. At its best: now to 2020" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2017

Vibrant black fruits on the nose with a supporting nuance of aromatic oak. The palate is full bodied and rich with soft tannins and a long finish. Enjoy at room temperature.

Toño (Ton Yo) is the familiar or nickname of Antonio in the Spanish language. Toño wines are a modern take on Spanish winemaking heritage, grown in the sunny Hawke’s Bay. Wines that are fun, delicious and reflect the Hawke’s Bay lifestyle.

The grapes were hand-picked and de-stemmed into open top fermenters. Around 30% whole bunches were added back to the ferment. After a five day cold soak, the ferment was allowed to warm up and progress without the addition of cultured yeast. Once pressed, the young wine spent 10 months in new and used oak barrels. All barrels were blended and the wine bottled.

Food Pairing: Great for accompaniment to a summer BBQ as perfect paired with cured or grilled meats.
