World-renowned importer and consulting winemaker Jorge Ordóñez is Toro’s most important modern pioneer and the man behind today’s gloriously good offer. When Jorge first traveled to Toro in 1991 there were only five cooperative wineries, but there were acres of incredible pre-phylloxera vineyards, planted on their original rootstock. In 1995, Jorge traveled to Toro with the Eguren family of Rioja; in 1997 they established Bodegas Numanthia. They sold the estate in 2007 and Jorge founded Bodegas Ordóñez. One of the wines produced by Bodegas Ordóñez, Triton, is considered by many to be Toro’s finest value. (importer notes)

The 2021 Triton is monovarietal (100% Tinta de Toro, otherwise known as Tempranillo) sourced from old, gnarly vines that yield ultra-ripe fruit. Aged in seasoned oak for 12 months before bottling, it is redolent with black raspberries and cassis laced with baking spices and mocha on the nose and palate.

93 points, Decanter:
"Intense nose of plum, blackberry, and blueberry jam. Very balanced with transparent, well-defined flavors. Tannins in great harmony with the fruit, acidity, and wood (which is very subtly worked in). Flavors of plum, red cherry, and cranberry, supported by elegant structure. A zesty pull on the finish allows the fruit to linger."

92 points, Vinous:
The 2021 Tritón is a 100% Tinta de Toro sourced from Toro and was aged 12 months in used oak barrels. Dark garnet in color. The nose reveals balsamic undergrowth notes, such as thyme and rosemary, accompanied by plums and raisins. Rich and liqueur-like, the firm tannins impart their character to a velvety mouthfeel. It lingers long with a chutney-like flavor.

92 points, James Suckling:
"Pretty complex nose with roasted spices and a hint of hot stone, graphite, and blackberries. Juicy and full-bodied on the palate with a fine wrap of dusty tannins."
