Characteristics of Alabaster

Alabaster is a great wine from Toro, produced by the Eguren family. It is elegant and delicate as the alabaster after which it is named to pay tribute to the pots in which Egyptians and Greeks used to keep their best perfumes and scents.
Alabaster is made of Tinta de Toro grapes from very old vines, pre-phylloxera, with a very low yield. A sustainable agriculture is applied, using natural fertilisers and without weed-killers or pesticides. The grape harvest is conducted in a handicraft way and the grapes are carefully selected. When the grapes arrive to the winery, the grapes are selected grain by grain and are manually destemmed. The grapes are traditionally treaded and are fermented in open vats with smooth pumpings.
Both the fermentation and the ageing take place in French oak barrels where the wine stays for 18 months. It is recommended decanting this wine at least 4-6 hours before serving it. Huge ageing capacity.
A red wine difficult to forget. It is made to be slowly enjoyed in good company.
Alcohol: 14.5%
Serve at 17ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption

Tasting notes Alabaster

Sight Intense, dark and deep cherry colour. Clean and bright wine with elegant slow-falling tears. Nose Intense, concentrated aromas, with a huge load of pleasant notes of fruit, with lots of ripe black fruit, almost jam, mixed with intense creamy and milky aromas, elegant notes of wood and great mineral touches. In the background, light floral aromas. Taste Powerful, strong, elegant and serious wine, with a lot of volume and a great body. It has a silky texture and a long, very tasty, meaty mid palate, full of notes of black fruit jam in all its nuances. It shows and excellent acidity and nice tannins that need some time to finish polishing. Very long and very persistent finish.
