Abadia Retuerta Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

AGEING: 24 months. DES. ORIGIN: Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León. GRAPE VARIETIES: * 100% Petit Verdot ALCOHOL VOLUME: 14.5 % SERVING TEMPERATURE: 17-18 ºC DESCRIPTION: A wine with a very limited production, of an intense vermilion red colour, velvety to the eyes. The nose is elegant, refined and subtle, with hints of mocha. In the mouth, the attack is smooth and oily. It immediately releases powerful tastes and develops intensely in the mouth: fresh fruit mixed with fruit preserve, with hints of toasted coffee, Virginia tobacco smoke, burnt caramel and toasted bread. The body is firm, muscular and structured; the finish is long, silky and warm on the tongue and cheeks. WINEMAKING PROCESS: Plot located on a slight slope facing north. The soil is predominantly sandy with pebbles. The best grape on the plot is selected and taken to the winery with splendid phenolic and physiological ripeness. The wine was fermented at 28 ºC and the maceration process lasted 25 days. The malolactic fermentation took place in new, fine-grain Allier oak casks with a medium toast, then it aged for 24 months in the same barrels.

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.
