    Winemaker Notes

    This wine is a careful selection of the nest barrels of ourbest-known wine worldwide: Abadía Retuerta Selección Especial. It combines the richness of a Tempranillo and theelegance of a Cabernet Sauvignon with the suppleness of the Syrah, and aged 13 months in French and American oak barrels.

    Hints of ripe black and red fruit (black and morello cherries andplums) combined with a balsamic, spicy bouquet (licorice) and notes of sweet wood. Big, fruity, creamy and lasting in the mouth. Full bodied, fronted with tannins that show great personality and are a delight for the palate, accentuating the long finish and persistence of the wine. A wine full of flavour and a very safe bet.

    LIMITED EDITION
    Only 66 barrels will be bottled for this limited edition, and will include singular design elements from the original label of Abadia Retuerta 1996 to honor the creation year of Novartis.

    THE BLEND
    75% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah.

    Abadia Retuerta, Spain
    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.

    Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, 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.

    Most planted and respected 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.
