Artic Char

For a first course, Chef Melendez took a bit of a risk by choosing to pair the Termes with fish. The richness of the artic char, which was paired with pimento, spring onion and a wonderful chorizo foam, knit together very well with the Termes. The pairing highlighted the unusual delicacy of the wine and illustrated how food-friendly and flexible it can be at the table.

The Termes is Numanthia's entry level bottling, produced from their "young vines." In this case however, young is a relative term, meaning vines that average between 30- and 50-years-old. Termes is designed to represent the fruit of Tinta de Toro. The wine is knit together from the fruit of the patchwork of exceptional vineyards that Numanthia has assembled.
