Abadia Retuerta Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León Pago la Garduña 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

AGEING: 20 months. D. ORIGIN: Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León. GRAPE VARIETIES: 100% Syrah ALCOHOL VOLUME: 14.5 % SERVING TEMPERATURE: 15-17ºC DESCRIPTION: Great intense colour. Dark black cherry. In the nose we can find a lot of red fruit, very fresh and a lacteous touch, very well blended together with the french wood used for its ageing. Very soft as it comes in the mouth leading into a great fruit explosion. An incredibly expressive wine. Powerful and balanced structure where stands out the excellent quality of the tannins, very ripe, fine and noble. Very long and persistent wine WINEMAKING PROCESS: Plot situated in the higher areas of the estate, slightly inclined to the north. The soil from Pago la Garduña is basically a calcareous soil with a blend of sand and clay with a good capability to retain the water. This pago is hidden by a dense forest of pine trees at an altitude of 790 metres. The wine fermented at around 28ºC and the maceration process lasted a total of 25 days. The malolactic fermentation took place in new Allier oak barrels, of fine grain, medium toast. It then matured for 20 months. This year, Syrah ripeness was really spectacular and we take the decision of bottling this single vineyard wine.

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.

Dark red in color. The nose on this wine keeps drawing me back with it's mix of raspberries, bacon fat, pepper, oak, vanilla, and anise aromas. Creamy soft in the mouth with an elegant balance of tannins and acid. Flavors of pure raspberries, minerals, black raspberries, pepper, cinnamon and violets all mingle on the palate. Incredibly well made wine. 4.5/5 [NR]

1st tasting-(6/5/2006)The nose is pure vanilla, raspberry with light minerals and with time smokey bacon fat. In the mouth the acidity is great with subdued tannins. Flavors of oak, vanilla, and black pepper give way with time to sweet cherry/raspberry, smoke and towards the finish coffee and chocolate flavors. Long finish and a wine that needs some air to fully realize it's potential. 4.5/5 2nd - (2/25/2006) Dark red in color.
