Product details

  • Variety

    Sauvignon Blanc
  • The sun drenched soils of Abadía Retuerta’s vineyards in Sardon de Duero are perfect for ripening the Sauvignon Blanc and Verdejo grapes for this complex, age-worthy wine. On the nose there is an intense bouquet of honey, preserved peaches, ginger and white flowers, alongside subtle notes of mint and embers. The palate opens softly, with exotic citrus, grapefruit and apple, merging with hints of freshly cut hay and aniseed. The structure has a perfectly alignment of crisp acidity, warming spicy fruit and a long, lingering finish.

Winemaking

The Sauvignon Blanc and Verdejo grapes were subject to a pre-fermentative 30 minute maceration before undergoing pressing and final settling for 24 hours at a cool temperature. A cool, wild fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks over a period of two days; the wine was then transferred to barrel. A unique system devised by Pascal Delbeck was used to move the wine to "IFO" steel mini-vats, allowing pump-free racking without moving the barrels. The wine was aged for 4-6 months in French oak and the final blend for this vintage was 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Verdejo.

Food recommendation

Pair with the most luxurious of foods, like lobster or scallops.
