Abadia Retuerta Selección Especial 2017, V.T. Castilla y León - Sardón de Duero, Spain

2016 vintage – 75% Tempranillo, 11% Cabernet Sauvigon, 11% Shiraz, 3% Merlo. Produced from a selection of the best grapes from each of the vineyards, it combines the richness of a Tempranillo and the elegance of a Cabernet Sauvignon with the strength of a Syrah. Dark red color with a clean, complex and fresh nose. On the palate, it has an intense fruity touch, mainly of red fruits. Aged in French and American oak barrels, the wood infuses notes of cedar, pastry and dark roasting. It attacks the palate politely but firmly. 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.
