After Vega de Toro, the producer of Numanthia and Termanthia, was taken over by Moët & Chandon, the former owners bought old wine plots and production of Almirez, Victorino and Alabaster started. Almirez comes from 50 year old vines and has had 14 months of wood aging. This sensational wine is a 100% Tinta de Tora. The Almirez has an inky black/pair color in the glass. It is a full complex wine with ripe dark red fruit: black currants, cassis, caramel, coffee, minerals, tobacco and beautiful wood tones. This full-bodied Almirez is fleshy in the finish with great density and purity and a very long aftertaste. According to Robert Parker, a wine with ".....and a finish that lasts nearly 40 seconds" Unbeatable value for money. The Almirez is a wine that will be a great asset for the next 10+ years.

The Spanish winery Teso La Monja is an exclusive winery and is one of the beautiful wineries of Hermanos Eguren. The vineyards are located in Zamora, Valdefinjas and Villabuena. Toro is certainly famous for having many ungrafted/original vines here that have not been affected by the grape aphid (Pre-phylloxera). The sandy soils prevented the louse from digging tunnels to reach the area. This in contrast to more than 95% of all vineyards that were lost in that time, so we are still talking about ungrafted and therefore original authentic grapes (vines).

Vineyard for 2020 Teso la Monja Almirez

The Spanish winery Teso La Monja is located in the Toro. The winery heralds a new era for the Eguren family in DO Toro, a land from which she fell in love with the capacity of the old pre-phylloxera vines. Teso La Monja was founded in 2007. Wines that bring the potential of the Tinta de Toro with elegance, finesse and freshness, shared by all wines of the Eguren family attributes. The Almirez, Victorino and also the great Romanico (unprecedented good value for money in our opinion) are invariably 90+ Parker and Penin wines. Not surprising knowing that the Eguren family is also behind the Alabaster cult wine.

The Teso La Monja winery is located on north-facing loam soils with gravel on the surface, providing longer vegetative cycles for achieving balanced, powerful yet elegant wines that convey the maximum potential of soil minerality.
