The Oddbins Take

Bodega Numanthia was named in tribute to the town of Numancia, renowned in antiquity for its legendary resistance to Roman invasion. Under attack from raiding legions in 134 BC, the townspeople fought to the last, choosing death over the dishonour of surrender. How very 300! It has become a bit more civil these days; you would have to be mighty unlucky to get Spartan kicked anywhere in the Toro region. However, tenacity and resilience does seem to run in the soil, as many vines are over a 100 years old, surviving in the extreme heat of summer and the chill of winter. They don't just survive either, they thrive! Producing incredibly concentrated, intense wines with big flavours of forest berries, cedar and liquorice. "Numancians what is your profession!?" Winemaker of course.
