Winemaker Notes

Dark color. Complex and powerful on the nose, highlights of balsamic notes, wild aromatic herbs and spices (black pepper and clove). It opens up with aromas of toffee and After Eight mints. Fruity in the mouth, blackcurrant and orange marmalade preserve. The finish is slightly herby, in perfect unison with the explosion of oily fruit that floods the palate. Long, voluptuous and full of muscle. Exquisite future in the bottle.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Pago Valdebellón, the single vineyard from the plot that names the wine, is pure Cabernet Sauvignon located at 850 meters altitude on white limestone-rich soils surrounded by pine trees, where the variety achieves the best ripeness among all their vineyards. The grapes were picked on October 18th, and the vines yielded 3,200 kilos of grapes per hectare. It fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and a total maceration time of 12 days, quite short. All movements here are done by gravity. Malolactic was carried out in new French barriques, where the wine matured for 18 months. This cool year shows the herbal and peppery aromas of the variety, with notes of bell pepper and tomato leaf plus a creamy touch of oak, because the barrels seem to have marked the wine more. The palate is medium-bodied with those herbal flavors providing a slightly bitter finish.

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.

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.
