This Spanish top wine is produced by winery Teso La Monja, an exclusive winery, one of the beautiful wineries of Hermanos Eguren.

Only 804 bottles were made of the bodega's top dole - the Teso de Monja. A true masterpiece of winemaking. The wine comes from a cool vineyard of only 1.8HA in size with extremely old vines (150 years and older - pre-phylloxera) that give an unbelievably high ripeness. The bunches are picked and selected per grape and completely manually destemmed and manually bruised by a team of 55 highly experienced people who do this every year. The wine ferments in an open-topped oak barrel followed by malolactic fermentation in an egg-shaped oak barrel. It matures in 3 brand new Bordeaux casks for about 24 months. This top wine from Teso La Monja has an unprecedented amount of layers. With every sniff and gulp something different emerges such as herbs, smoke, toast, balsamic notes of incense and cigars. Red and black fruits and oak also return on the palate with an amazing finish.

The wine is packed in a very nice wooden box containing a dummy bottle to display and a filled bottle for the cellar. All numbered, of course.

Fact: There is a lot of messing around with cult wines these days, so certainly also with this wine. We are the official importer and you can check if you have an official bottle supplied by an importer via the Teso la Monja website. You can be sure that you do not accidentally have a counterfeit or refilled bottle. You can do this at: http://www.sierracantabria.com/en/wineries/teso-la-monja/teso-la-monja-wine/
