Abadia Retuerta Tempranillo Blend Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León Selección Especial 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: The 2005 Seleccion Especial is composed of 75% Tempranillo, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot aged for 18 months in French and American oak. Purple-colored, it offers up a toasty bouquet of cedar, leather, black currants, and blackberry. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with a smooth texture, good depth, and enough ripe tannin to permit another 2-3 years of evolution. Drink this forward, tasty effort now-2015.

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.

Konzentration und Dichte prägen diesen Wein vom Anfang bis ins lange anhaltende Finale. In der Nase offenbaren sich vielfältige Fruchtaromen (Kirschen, Beeren), die, zusammen mit einer bedeutenden Ausbauaromatik, ein grosses Genusserlebnis ankündigen. Harmonie herrscht im Gaumen. Schliff, feine Textur und eine tiefe Struktur vereinigen sich zu einem hervorragenden Gesamterlebnis. In seiner gehaltvollen Art überzeugt dieser ausdrucksstarke Wein.
