Elías Mora Crianza is a wine made with Tinta de Toro from the winery’s own vineyards, located at around 800 metres of altitude. After a manual harvest in 20 kg boxes, with 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 12 months in French and American oak barrels.
- Cherry coloured robe with a garnet rim.
- Complex, inviting aromas typical of a Tinta de Toro. Juicy suggestions of red and black fruit, combined with hints of tobacco, spices and flowers over a mineral and floral background reminiscent of violets.
- Bold and pleasantly warm, this Tinta de Toro by Elías Mora makes quite an entrance onto the palate. Meaty, well structured and lively, it nevertheless has an excellent acidity that counterbalances its weight. Spicier than on the nose, with hints of liquorice, toffee and cocoa. The tannins are smooth, and the finish is uplifting and slightly mineral.
