Review

Continuing the Alonso del Yerro family's strong bond with the land, Paydos combines all the Toro region's virtues; it's intense and profound, but as always happens with this house's wines, it's also extremely fine and elegant.

The old bush vines, planted in gravel and clay soils, enjoy a superb setting in which to grow at an altitude of more than 700 metres. It rains very little and there's an extreme contrast in day and night temperatures, both very favourable for obtaining a wine of magnificent quality.

After a good harvesting by hand and a maceration lasting 24 hours, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and subsequent ageing for 15 months in French oak barrels.

In appearance it exhibits boldness, an intense dark Picota cherry colour. On the nose, the ripe black fruit, liquorice, cocoa and blue flowers all define it. On the palate it's full-bodied and profound, as it should be, but it also boasts polished tannins and fine spicy touches. Balsamic hints emerge from its impressive volume.

Un magnifico vino de toro

Afrutado, elegante y sabor a madera. Un caldo que ameniza cualquier reunión, un regalo al paladar que será bien recibido por cualquier buen amante del vino.

Eine einzige Enttäuschung

Der Name Alonso del Yerro und die 94 Parker Punkte überzeugten mich diesen Wein zu bestellen und relativ viel Geld zu bezahlen.Leider hat er nicht gehalten was er verspricht. Nicht dass es ein schlechter Wein wäre, für 10-15 € würde ich mich überhaupt nicht beschweren und sagen passt schon Aber für 33.- € stimmt das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis überhaupt nicht. Summa summarum ein langweiliger Wein ohne besondere Note der extrem überteuert ist.

Good to taste

Color intensity is clearer, ferme tannins, un pleasant paint aroma. Good finish, lack of a bit of complexity and structure

Cumple totalmente las espectativas

Vino potente y aún así con fruta. Tb se notan toques de pimienta. Un vino potente como corresponde a Toro; para tomar como copa o con estofados carnes maceradas.

Viñedos Alonso del Yerro

The name Alonso del Yerro is familiar to many of us as a famous winery and well-established among the Ribera del Duero's greats. There's no doubting this, but a fact not so well-known is that it began life back in 2002, when husband and wife Javier Alonso and María del Yerro decided to make their dream of producing fine wines a reality in Roa (Burgos). From then on, their popularity and the quality of their wines have continued on a rapid rise, thanks to exacting standards an...
