The Alma is the brand new wine from Rioja house Contador, from winemaker Benjamin Romeo. This wine is distributed via Place du Bordeaux where it is distributed among the official wine merchants (including Grand Cru wines). Benjamin Romeo, recognized winemaker in Spain is an icon with consistently very high scores from wine critics around the world, including Robert Parker, who awards 100 points to Contador 2004 & 2005.

This New cuvée from Benjamin Romeo reflects the 'magic' of winemaking San Vincente de la Sonsierra, the historic center of Rioja. The wine is named after his 6-year-old daughter Alma, released on March 8 - International Women's Day. Made from 3 plots located in the high, medium and low altitudes of Benjamin's vineyards, bringing respectively intensity, minerality and a more gourmand profile: La Viña de Andres, El Bombón & Diasol. Alma, "Soul" in Spanish, also represents the soul of this unique blend of the 3 lots. There is a limited production of this fine wine. The Contador Alma is a blend of Tempranillo, with some Garnacha Tinta for freshness and elegance. Aging for 20 months in new French oak barrels from six different cooperages.

Benjamin Romeo wanted to create a more classic style and he succeeded with this first edition of the Contador Alma. It is perfumed and floral, with notes of aromatic herbs, a little balsamic with very fine tannins and freshness, as it contains more grapes from the higher used areas. It's powerful and elegant.
