Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

They are releasing some magnums of the 2004 Cuvée Palomar that was bottled in December 2006, so it has had time to develop aromatic complexity and polish its tannins in bottle. As is often the case with library releases and special bottlings, the price is very high, 250€ for a magnum in Spain. This was a 50/50 blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon from the vineyards that delivered more delicate and elegant wines in search of aromatic complexity, freshness and finesse. I'd say the wine has reached its objective and shows developed aromas, complexity and elegance, quite classical in style, with very integrated oak and a velvety texture. It has passed the test of time and is ready for prime-time drinking now. At the time, they produced 890 magnums, but I'm not sure how many still remain today.

Abadia Retuerta Winery Image

The Abadía Retuerta Estate occupies over 700 hectares of terrain, and its name comes from the combination of two words that define and describe the territory: Rívula (river bank) and Torta (twisting, winding). Over 204 hectares of vineyards are spread out on hillsides ranging in altitude from a maximum 850 metres down to the southern bank of the Duero River. Most of the world's best varieties of soil are represented.

Designed by famous French enologist, Pascal Delbeck, in 1996, Abadía Retuerta winery is a surprising combination of tradition and modernity, recognized as one of the most advanced wineries in Europe. Currently, Angel Anocíbar Beloqui (PhD in Enology and Ampelography from the University of Bordeaux and International Wine Challenge 2005 Winemaker of the Year) coordinates the entire process, from the vine to the bottle.

Abadía Retuerta estate wines offer some very unique characteristics. They are full-colored wines, intense and aromatically clean, clearly structured, smooth to the palate and delicate in the development of their strength.

Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
