Abadia Retuerta Tempranillo Blend Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León Rívola 2007

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 100% Tempranillo rosé is a lovely bright cherry pink in colour, with clean, intense strawberry, peach and pepper-tinged aromas that leap from the glass. On the palate, the wine is full-flavoured and lively, with an excellent balance of juicy red fruit and zesty acidity to keep it fresh through to the lingering finish.

Abadía Retuerta:

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.

Eine intensive Fruchtaromatik (Erdbeeren, Zwetschgenkompott) entfaltet sich im Glas. Sie verheisst ein genussreiches Erlebnis! Im Gaumen dann Stoff - saftige, weiche Tannine - gepaart mit einer fruchtigen Struktur und einer recht opulenten, leckeren Textur. Das Finale, anhaltend, fruchtig und von Ausbauaromen (Zimt, Vanille, Lebkuchengewürz) begleitet, hält, was die Nase ankündigt: Rivola ist ein gelungener Rotwein, der auf Anhieb gefällt.

Rivola 2007 - Abadia Retuerta: Rivola 2007 - Rotwein von Abadia Retuerta Sehr dicht, vielseitig und angenehm weich präsentiert sich der Rivola 2007. Sein Bukett ist geprägt von lang anhaltenden und komplexen Aromen, die an Früchte und mediterane Gewürze erinnern. Durch die einjährige Fassreife wird der Rotwein rund, harmonisch und gewinnt an Komplexität. Vor der Abfüllung wird der Wein filtriert. Er ist ein wunderbarer Solist, aber auch ein perfekter Begleiter von Tapas oder Lamm.   Weingut: Abadia RetuertaLand: SpanienAnbauregion: Kastilien-Leon Rebsorten: 60% Tempranillo, 40% Cabernet SauvignonAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Inhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18 °CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate) Rotwein > Spanien > Kastilien-León

From the Sardon del Duero, next door to Ribera, Abadia Retuerta showcases rich, ripe Tempranillo fruit in a full-bodied red wine. Ideal with leg of lamb or beef roasts.
