Rarely has one name been so linked to one region. Founded in 1942, this premium family wine estate is well acknowledged as the founding fathers of the region of TORO. Their 100% commitment to quality, pioneering efforts, respect for the terroir and the unparalleled knowledge and belief in the region´s varietal TINTA DE TORO has helped them gain the reputation as one of the premium producers of TORO wines. At the helm is second generation Manuel Fariña, a key figure in the Spanish wine industry. Following his winemaking studies in several places, he returned to TORO with new ideas and new technology and single handely converted the rustic backwater region of TORO into a fine wine making region following the reduction of alcohol by changing the centuries old tradition of starting the harvest on the 12th October, introduction of stainless steel and temperature controls. With Bernardo Fariña, the third generation of Fariña winemakers, currently leading the winemaking team, the efforts of the past are set to continue well into the future. Read less

A light simple nose - a touch of herbs, a smidge of yeast and a layer of lemon. More activity on the palate though with a gentle lemony start giving way to a sherbet, grapefruity palate and a tang of acidity. Pleasant enough and very drinkable but seldom is Malvasia ever going to knock yer socks into a cocked-hat (or something). Unoaked. Alcohol 12.5%. Its clean, fresh crispness was a joy though with some crispy Calamari rings dunked in mayonnaise. While the squid wasn't the best - it was frozen rather than fresh and certainly not as good as the mammoth sized rings myself and Douglas devoured with passion at a local Italian last week - but the wine worked wonders. When they say 'good with seafood' this partnership is what they have in mind http://www.spittoon.biz/good_with_seafood_bodegas_fari.html
