Abadia Retuerta Selección Especial is a red wine blend of Tempranillo (75%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) and Syrah (10%) grapes. This deep coloured, complex red wine combines the richness of Tempranillo, the elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon and the strength of Syrah. The nose is fresh and vibrant, full of ripe black and red fruits combined with lingering notes of balsamic, liquorice and sweet oak wood. The full bodied, creamy palate is structured by smooth tannins, juicy ripe fruits and a hint of cedar. 2011 was one of Abadía Retuerta’s best ever vintages, delivering a style of wine that can be drunk with pleasure right now or left to develop further complexities over the next few years.
