Vibrant and fruity, Termes stands out for its lively character. This wine perfectly expresses the Toro region. At the Numanthia winery, extended maceration on the grape skins and regular racking during 16 months' ageing in French oak barrels give the wine a lively combination of fruit and structure. Toasted notes with cedar and spice frame a richly layered, juicy texture on the palate. To pair with the vibrant fruit and juicy texture of Termes, look no further than the savory flavors of grilled meat, the intense richness of the finest cures Spanish ham (jamon Iberico) or beef Carpaccio.

Wine EnthusiastSince its inception, Numanthia has never once bottled a disappointing Termes. Aromas of lemon peel and orange rind mix with blackberry and cassis notes. This feels tight and tannic, but structured and appropriate. Dark-berry and chocolate flavors finish tannic but healthy. This is true-to-form Toro.Drink through 2021.
