Alabaster is the perfect expression of hand craftsmanship and traditional winemaking in Rioja. From pre phylloxera vines older than a hundred years. A unique and very limited wine!
100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo).
Only 4000 fls produced.
From ALABASTER it is expected that it could become the successor of Termanthia (the family EGUREN sold Termanthia to Moet & Chandon in 2007 and started a new project in the same year: Bodegas Teso la Monja)).
The family EGUREN consistently continues its tradition of precision and quality. The grapes are only picked by hand and collected in small boxes to avoid damage. The yield is 10hl / ha.
16 months matured in French oak. Harvested only from vines of 65-100 years. Full aromatic wine. Plums, black currants, cherries, minerals, beautiful tannins and a grand finale.
Good combination with red meat, game and hard cheeses.
