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.
2014 Abadia Retuerta Pago Negralada
Sardon Del Duero
In our single vineyard wines we seek to bring out above all the true character of the terroir. Pago Negralada comes from a plot of Tempranillo, the noblest Spanish grape variety. The vines are planted in deep gravel soils intermixed with sand at the surface, and produce wines with a distinctive firm, tannic character.
Having aged 24 months in new French oak barrels, the wine has now developed its full potential. Its full ripeness comes to the fore with layers of fragrant strawberry fruit, liquorice, herbs and minerals with soft, silky tannins on the palate.
In 2010 this wine obtained several international awards and scored 90 points and higher in some of the most prestigious wine tasting events. With its great ageing potential, this is a wine for the long haul. A wine with its roots firmly in the past and its sights set on future triumphs.
Grape Variety: 100% Tempranillo
Aging: 24 Months in French Oak Barrels
Apellation: Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León – Sardón de Duero
The 2014 Vintage
The main feature of this vintage is the large number of racemes per plant we found budding on the vines (30% above average). This forced us to do very strict green pruning to adapt production. Autumn and winter recorded 250 l of rainfall, which took the phreatic stratum to maximum capacity. Summer was quite dry (not one single drop of rain fell in August), but water reserves completed the cycle of the vine thanks to good control of the number of racemes on each one. The month of September recorded rainfall of 32 l, which led to the first signs of botrytis. October was a rainy month and that led us to bring the date of the harvest forward, since the grape was already ripe and the rain could have compromised its health. So, white grapes were harvested on 14 September. The harvest of the black grapes began on 24 September and ended on 6 October with Pago Garduña. If we take the heat summation index of the vintage into account, it shows a warmerthan-average climate, which is, in principle, good for quality.
The white wine of this vintage is very aromatic. It has excellent acidity and is big and persistent in the mouth.
