Estancia Piedra was born from a family dream, a family who wanted to turn their passion into reality: to produce excellent quality wines.
The vineyard was planted in 1968, and is the largest parcel of old vines in the Toro D.O. The Estancia Piedra team of highly qualified professionals ensure that their passion for wine is reflected every day in a quality product, a wine that represents the character of the Duero region.
Their winery, situated in the Guareña valley in the heart of the Toro D.O., specializes in enotourism.
Piedra wines have been created to delight the senses, to celebrate life and friendship. With a wide range in continuous expansion, these wines adapt to the tastes of a wide variety of palates. From young and natural wines made without sulphites or any additive treatment, to wines that appreciate the value of time and maturity, which express the best of a very old vineyard in the Toro region – “Wines proud of their origin.”
This wine is made with grapes sourced from the Bocarraje vineyard, using absolutely no sulfites, nor additives or treatments of any kind. The grapes are exclusively hand harvested, ripe Tinta de Toro grapes. After spontaneous alcoholic fermentation, with the malolactic naturally following in French oak barriques, the wine remains on its lees for a period of six months, after which it is lightly filtered prior to bottling.
With all of its integrity and natural fruit, this wine is a pure expression of the best that an old vineyard site in the Toro region has to offer.
Very careful sorting of only the best grapes on its arrival to the winery. 10 days in 5000 litre stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature (maximum 25oC). Frequent pumping over. Malolactic fermentation in new French oak barriques, followed by 6 months in French oak barriques. Bottled with minimal filtration. Certified organic. VEGAN.
A sexy, juicy wine with an explosion of fruit flavours -strawberries, redcurrant, raspberries, black cherries. But this is more than just juice, this is a concentrated wine made with grapes from an old vineyard. It may be fun, but it’s still serious winemaking.
Beautifully concentrated on the palate with tannins that turn it into a structured, dense, concentrated wine. In terms of flavours, think fresh cherries, black prunes with spicy notes.
Charcuterie and soft cheeses.
Delicious drunk young but would benefit from carefully cellaring for 2-4 years.
