Abadia Retuerta Tempranillo Blend Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León Rívola 2008

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. Rivola has good depth of ruby red colour and an intense black cherry nose with notes of coffee, clove and liquorice. On the palate, the wine is wonderfully expressive, smooth and fresh - with the Cabernet giving depth and concentration to the ripe strawberry character of the Tempranillo - through to the long, vanilla-spiced finish.

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.

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.

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.
