Winemaker Notes

Excellent depth of color, reflecting the wine's young age. It is a garnet, black cherry hue. The aromas are find and clean. Jammy black fruits on the nose (wild blackberries, plums, morello cherries, strawberries, raspberries). Very mineral and balsamic, typical of the Duero terroir, with floral hints (violets and lilacs). Very spicy, revealing notes of nutmeg and subtle hints of cloves and bay leaf, with touches of chocolate, toffee and licorice coming through in the background. A firm mouth-feel, fresh, savory and balanced. Elegant tannins, superb length and a lingering finish enhance the wine's great individual character, without taking away any of its harmony.

Blend: 75% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah

Wine & Spirits
Sard'n del Duero is just outside Ribera del Duero, where Abadia Retuerta's wines share the same power and ripeness of the neighboring appellation. This wine's notes of figs and chestnuts merge with flavors of blackberries in liqueur. The powerful tannic structure carries that formidable weight like the pillars of a bridge.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
These are impressive wines, although in terms of value for money, I would head straight to the 2009 Seleccion Especial, a blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah. It has a rounded, iodine-tinged bouquet with great purity and panache, the oak seamlessly integrated with scents of black coffee developing over time. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy texture, crisp acidity and very fine tannins. It has a velvety, caressing texture with blackberry, cassis and espresso towards the precise, supple finish. This is an accomplished, flavor-packed wine...

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.
