Abadia Retuerta Petit Verdot Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León Pv 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

"A curiosity at Abadia Retuerta is its tiny parcel of Petite Verdot. While this grape often fails to ripen in Bordeaux, in certain warmer microclimates in Spain, it seems to flourish. The 2002 Petite Verdot is a dense purple with a nose of black fruits and toasty oak. The wine has layers of black fruit flavors, ripe tannin, and a long finish. It needs another 4-6 years to show its full potential and should drink well for an additional 10-15 years...91" WA 2/07

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.
