Sustainability is central to the Eguren family. The vineyards have been cultivated according to organic wine-growing principles for more than thirty years. Chemical pesticides have therefore not been used for a long time. The vineyards of Sierra Cantabria are protected from the cold northern winds by the eponymous Sierra Cantabria mountains. The vineyard locations differ from each other in height, soil composition, location and age of the vines. They all benefit from the confluence of Atlantic and Mediterranean climate influences. Every vineyard therefore has its own character and it is these different character (terroir) properties that the Eguren family wants to show in the wines.

The Protocolo comes from vineyards located in the Tierra de Castilla, AOC made by the famous winery Dominio de Eguren (known from the Nieta, Sierra Cantabria, Bosque, Almirez, Alabaster, San Vicente) and distinguishes itself through its strict selection and is owned from the best vineyards in Spain from only old authentic vineyards with deliberately low yields. These principles also apply to the Protocolo Tinto. The tempranillo grapes come from 30-70 year old vineyards with an average yield: 36 Hls / Ha. The Protocolo Tinto is an ecologically produced wine and is made from Tempranillo grapes that give it its sweetness and maturity. In the scent you can quickly discover that, beautiful aromas of black fruit, herbs and a little something of currants. The taste is soft and balanced, lots of ripe fruit and a good dose of herbs and light vanilla. This Protocolo Tempranillo is ripe and fairly firm and with its long finish a very nice wine and is a real Value for Money wine. Slogan van Eguren with the Protocolo wine is therefore: “An everyday wine. Best value. " For us, consider one of the best wines and therefore also organically produced, so no added sulphites, fertilizers or poisons.

Guia Penin 2018: 87 points. Color: bright cherry, garnet rim. Aroma: medium intensity, ripe fruit, sweet spices. Boca: correct, good finish, easy to drink.

James Suckling - 91/100 points for the 2016 Protocolo Tinto
