Winemaker Notes

Alabaster is the Eguren family’s representation of the elegance that can be achieved in wines made from the oldest Tinta de Toro vineyards. Profound balance, silky texture, and maximum expression of terroir.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JD 96
Jeb Dunnuck
The 2015 Alabaster is another pure Tinta de Toro release and comes from 11.5 hectares of vineyards located around Valmediano, la Jara and Marinacea. All from very old (100+-year-old) ungrafted vines, completely destemmed, and aged all in new French oak, it has a sensational perfume of plums, graphite, and wood smoke, with more and more chalky minerality developing with time in the glass. Rich, full-bodied, gorgeously concentrated, and opulent, it’s one heavenly Toro that’s going to keep for 20-25 years.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Polished and dense, this muscular red offers bright flavors of cherry, red plum, sandalwood, licorice and cocoa, focused by ripe, full tannins and fresh acidity. Floral and mineral notes emerge on the finish. Reserved now, but should blossom with time. Drink now through 2030.
JS 94
James Suckling
Sweet-smelling, spicy black cherry and well integrated oak. This is really sexy and seductive. Plush with glossy, polished tannins and long flavors on the finish.

Teso la Monja, Spain
Image of winery
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.
