Food Pairings for Bodegas Y Vinedos Maurodos Prima
The grapes for Prima are sourced from vines aged 25 years from the villages of San Roman de Hornija, Vil- laster and Morales. The vineyards for this wine are growing in sandy-clay soils as opposed to the stonier soils of fruit sourced for San Roman and are trained both en vaso and to wire. The winter of 2008-9 was mild without frost. There was little rain in the Spring and blooming began 15 days earlier than last year. Grapes ripened early during the very hot summer. Harvest began in early September.
With ripeness being easy to accomplish in Toro (particularly in 2009), it’s balance that is the hallmark of a great Toro producer. The Prima 2009 showcases its richness like a ballerina. Hints of toastiness linger, but it’s the vibrant fruit that carries the day.
Notes: 12 months French and American oak barrels various ages
