Teso La Monja Alabaster 2009
Free Delivery with Orders over £95
"There are notes of blackcurrant pastilles, cedar and a touch of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with nicely integrated oak, the tannins not quite as fine as the 2010 Teso La Monja Alabaster, but supporting more fruit toward the finish. Blackberry, brine, touches of cedar and orange zest inform the finish, which has good weight. Drink 2014-2025+. 94 Points"

Harvested on 14th and 15th October with yields of ten hectoliters per hectare, the 2009 Teso La Monja Alabaster is similar to the 2010 in that it is a little reticent at first and demands coaxing from the glass.
