Heiner Lobenberg über:
Teso La Monja Tempranillo 2017


Lobenberg: Prephylloxera Reben in Buschform auf Kalkstein-Sylicat-Sandboden aus einem winzigen Plot in cool climate Hochlage, dazu naturgemäß ultrakleine Erträge je Stock. Handlese und dann zwei Drittel per Hand entrappt, nur extrem gesundes und sauberes Lesegut. Ein Teil unentrappte Ganztraube, alles im Schichtverfahren, ab und zu per Hand angequetscht und per Hand gepresst. Immenser Aufwand um das Beste vom Besten aus Toro zu vinifizieren mit dem Anspruch des besten Weins Spaniens. Zwei Jahre im neuen französischen Barrique ausgebaut. Erde, schwarze Frucht, Kaffee und dunkles Gestein, tiefe würzige Veilchen und Trockenblumen dahinter. Konzentriertes Cassis mit getrockneten Blaubeeren. Tolle Frische und unendlich lang, immet wieder hochrollend. Der Wein braucht einige Jahre und wird ewig halten. Die Nummer 1 in Spanien? Ein Ereignis wie vom anderen Stern, also durchaus denkbar. 100/100

Jeb Dunnuck über: Teso La Monja Tempranillo

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Jeb Dunnuck zu 2016: Lastly, the 2016 Teso la Monja comes from a tiny 1.8-hectare vineyard of pre-phylloxera vines and was hand destemmed and fermented in open top, oak tanks. The aging occurred in three new Bordeaux barrels and spanned two years. This deep purple-hued beauty needs air to show at its best but offers a sensational nose of blackcurrants, vanilla bean, scorched earth, lead pencil, and graphite. This carries to a full-bodied, powerful, concentrated wine with gorgeous tannins, a deep, unctuous mid-palate, good acidity, and a monster of a finish. This incredible, seamless and flawlessly balanced beauty will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 15+. 97/100

Weingut über: Teso La Monja Tempranillo

-- Weingut: Marcos Eguren:‘Teso La Monja’ is an invitation to enjoy the magic of Tinta de Toro —that intimate tie between the vineyard and its environment— in a wine born to be a legend, embraced by generation after generation, and standing the test of time.The Vineyard, a natural heritage:Uncork ‘Teso La Monja’ and embark on a fascinating journey to a small enchanted plot of land, with that mystical nature found only in privileged terroirs that have achieved the status of natural heritage with the passing of deca- des. Man is called to preserve these special terroirs with tender care, as if they were precious and fragile treasures. with tender care, as if they were precious and fragile treasures.‘Teso La Monja’ originates in a 1.8 hectare pre-phylloxera vineyard whose quality fascinated and captivated us immediately. Its soil composition, with a limestone level slightly higher than the rest of the region, endows the wine with distinction and unique elegance. Loyal to our philosophy of recovering the viticulture practised by our great- grandfather Amancio Eguren, we have worked the vineyard by hand, at just the right time, on just the right day, in order to optimise and honour the principle of minimum intervention, in order to obtain the maximum character and identity, respecting the singularity of the terroir and the rhythms of its environment.Winemaking, refined and artisanal care:‘Teso La Monja’ is crafted with the utmost respect for nature’s biorhythms and energies.With constant and meticulous respect for the fragility of the grape bunches, a team of 50 people approximately de-stemm the fruit by hand, grape by grape. Once the alcoholic fermentation begins in an open wood tank, the manual pressing commences with 25-50 cm of grapes on the surface. Thus, 35-45% of the grapes are pressed in a process occurring three times a day for an hour and a half.The malolactic fermentation takes place in a unique, egg-shaped oak tank, the Ovum, designed by the master coo- pers of the maison Taransaud, complying with the ‘golden rule’ or ‘divine ratio’. The Ovum fosters the biorhythms of the wine and achieves a silky, elegant and integrated wine. The wine is then aged in three new fine-grained, medium toasted French, Bordelaise oak barrels for a minimum period of 24 months.The Wine, connveying a magical atmosphere:The most surprising quality of this wine is that it genuinely expresses its magical setting, displaying great freshness, finesse, all-embracing tannins, a deceitful aroma and a slightly ethereal body capable of making a lasting impression.
