This is our best-known wine worldwide. Produced from a selection of the best grapes from each of our vineyards, it combines the richness of a Tempranillo and the elegance of a Cabernet Sauvignon with the strength of a Syrah.
Dark red colour with a clean, complex and fresh nose. On the palate, it has an intense fruity touch, mainly of red fruits. Aged 11 months in French and American oak barrels, the wood infuses notes of cedar, pastry and dark roasting. It attacks the palate politely but firmly.
In 2005, Abadía Retuerta Selección Especial 2001 received the award at the International Wine Challenge in London as the world’s Best Red Wine. Likewise, Abadía Retuerta Seleccion Especial has been the only Spanish wine included three consecutive years in the Wine Spectator´s Top 100 World Wine List.
This is a very well-balanced wine, harmonious, with a rich bouquet and incredible expressiveness. Worthy fruit of the vine and of a job well done.
