Teso la Monja

Having sold their Termanthia estate in 2007, the Eguren family could not resist the call of Toro for long and identified a prime estate with parcels of old vines, some pre-phylloxera,scattered around Toro, Zamora, Valdefinjas and Villabuena del Puente. The young parcels are 15-30 years old and go into the Almirez, the 45 year plus vines are reserved for Alabaster and Victorino. The vineyards are treated with typical Eguren care and attention, everything is hand picked into small boxes to avoid crushing, yields are tiny (between 10-20 hl/ha) and ageing takes place in french oak barrels. The result is a stunning set of wines of great intensity, charm and purity. They are every bit as concentrated as their predecessors with a finer, more subtle quality to them.
