Abadía Retuerta Pago de la Garduña Bodegas Abadia Retuerta Valladolid/España 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The Abadia winery is located in the heart of the Golden Mile of Spanish winemaking between Tudela de Duero and Penafiel. The Golden Mile has special climatic conditions and an age-old winemaking tradition. First planted in 1991, primarily on the northern, stonier and less fertile side of the Duero valley, the estate of Santa Maria de Retuerta covers 700 hectares, of which 204 are planted to vine. This wine was reviewed by Robert Parker's Spanish critic Jay Miller in 2007: "The 2004 Pago Negrolada is 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in new French oak. Dense purple-colored, it delivers a complex aromatic array of wood smoke, toast, mineral, espresso, black cherry, blackberry, and a hint of truffle. On the palate, notes of herbs, minerals, licorice, and berry fruit emerge. This splendidly balanced wine will evolve for 3-5 years and drink well through 2025." 92 points

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. We have a wide variety of soils, with representations of most of the world’s best varieties, and state-of-the-art technology (meteorological stations, anti-frost towers, etc.) The rest of the estate is comprised of the winery, 12th century abbey, a farm, forest and bush.

Ein Bündel unterschiedlicher Aromen strömt als Duftkonzentrat aus dem Glas: zuerst klassisch-herbe Ausbaunoten, die uns an Rauch und Tabak erinnern, dann reife Fruchtaromen (Zwetschgen, schwarze Kirschen), begleitet von einer Spur streng-grünlicher Noten. Das Markenzeichen dieses strukturierten Weines: Kraft, Gehalt und Dichte in Reinkultur. Unendlich erscheint das grandiose Finale, das von Feinheit und Vielschichtigkeit bei gleichzeitiger Tiefe geprägt ist. Ein seltenes Erlebnis!
