Description

The Petit Verdot – the most exotic of the Bordeaux grapevines – is the basis of this original wine. Normally used in small proportions to provide nerve to other varieties, Abadía Retuerta has taken advantage of the full potential of this grape to create a single-variety wine that is both unique and very original. The scorching sun of Castile, a particular terroir with predominantly sandy soil, and 24 months of ageing in oak barrels bestow an exquisite character on this wine.

An intense vermilion velvet, it has a fine, elegant and subtle nose with hints of mocha. Soft and unctuous, it immediately releases powerful and intense flavours of fresh and candied fruit with hints of roasted coffee, blonde tobacco smoke, burnt caramel and crusty bread.

With a firm, structured body, its finish is long, silky and warm in the mouth. It has a very limited and select production. An indulgence for sybarites.

Our winemaker Angel Anocíbar has directed since its grounds the technical project of Abadía Retuerta under the guidance of Pascal Delbeck internationally renowned winemaker. He is a firm believer that the vine should not be forced and that time and knowledge alone should be allowed to get the most out of the grape.
