Critical Acclaim

WS 96
Wine Spectator
This impressive red delivers luscious fruit, lavish oak and a deep vein of minerality, backed by round, full tannins and lively acidity. Deeply concentrated, this remains plush and harmonious. Big and bold, in the modern style. Drink now through 2030.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Alabaster was sourced from the same vineyards as the 2013, and also matured in new barriques for 18 months. 2014 was a warmer and riper vintage than 2013, and these grapes were picked on September 12th with tiny yields of 9.5 hectoliters per hectare. The signature creaminess, mouthfeel and texture of the Alabaster is very evident here, with perhaps a little less structure than the Victorino from the same year. It's still marked by some toasted and smoky notes from the time in barrel, especially considering this was very recently bottled, and is the first wine that feels like it needs some more time in bottle. This is the richest and headier of all the wines I tasted from Teso la Monja in this sitting. The nose kept unfurling ripe and intoxicating aromas with time in the glass. 4,000 bottles produced.

Teso la Monja, Spain
Teso la Monja Winery Image
After several years had passed of choosing the best vineyards and, at the same time, making some new plantations in privileged places, it was in 2007 when, with the skill of 10 successful years cultivating vineyards and producing famous wines, the winery Teso La Monja came about.

A wine region influenced by the presence of the river Douro, complemented by softly rugged-rolling terrain and a special microclimate with superb conditions for the growth of the grapevine. An area where the Eguren family has acquired very specific high quality north facing vineyards in the villages of the Zamora province Valdefinjas, Toro and Villabuena del Puente.

In these vineyards only one variety, the Tinta de Toro, native of this area, is grown. This variety has very low yields (around to 1,500 Kg / Ha) of small clusters and berries that synthesise a large amount of polyphenols, which makes it a favorable choice to make wine with structure and high aromatic concentration.

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
