Review:

In ancient times, the Egyptians and Greeks used to preserve their most aromatic perfumes in delightful alabaster bottles. What a lovely introduction to a wine so elegant and delicate as Alabaster, made from grape clusters that have been destalked by hand and treaded in the traditional way so as to achieve a very gentle extraction. Alabaster is the Eguren family's most exclusive Toro wine — a wine that is pure balance and harmony.

Winery's evaluation of the vintage:

The autumn of 2017 was warm and dry. The weather started to cool off at the end of November, and January saw light rainfall and below-average temperatures. February and March were very rainy months; February was also a particularly cold month, while March was cool. April originally brought mild temperatures but they dropped drastically as low as -5ºC mid-month, bringing a halt to the crying or bleeding of the vines' cuts. Budding started at the end of April. Although the start of May was also cold, it did not damage the shoots. The second half of the month gave abundant rainfall and cool temperatures. June started out with a moderate increase in temperatures and unusual rainfall patterns, and flowers began to bloom mid-month. Temperatures shot up to 35ºC at the end of the month and the rain kept coming. July was a warm month too, leading to a good ripening period which finished midway through the dry month of August. The harvest collected fewer bunches of grapes than in other years, but the grapes were bigger and had an excellent level of ripeness which produced exceptionally balanced wines with good structure, a wonderful colour, and ripe tannins.

Toro, Spain
