Abadia Retuerta 2017 Selección Especial Sardon de Duero
Viño de la Tierra de Castilla y León Spain
Wine Advocate 92 Rating
2017 and 2018 were very different years in the Duero, but at Abadía Retuerta, the killer frost from 2017 barely touched the vines. The 2017 Selección Especial is concentrated from the low yields and ripe from the warm cycle. It’s a blend of 75% Tempranillo, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Syrah and 3% Merlot that matured for 12 months in barrels, one-third new. It’s ripe and creamy and has an extroverted personality. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with a juicy texture and fine, chalky tannins.
Must be ordered.
