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. 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.

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 that should repay a few months cellaring. Drink now 2013-2018. -Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
