  • Petit Verdot is a native Bordeaux variety which has found the perfect home in Abadia Retuerta’s low yielding vineyards in Sardon de Duero. This sublime expression of the variety has an intense dark cherry hue and a rich, sweet nose of blueberry, liquorice, toffee and dark chocolate. The full bodied palate has concentrated flavours of blackcurrant, mocha and smooth tobacco, while the sleek, satin tannins of this brilliant 2011 vintage provide a structure that will see this lasting the distance if cellared.

Tasting Note:
Petit Verdot is a native Bordeaux variety which has found the
perfect home in Abadia Retuerta’s low yielding vineyards in
Sardon de Duero. This sublime expression of the variety has an
intense dark cherry hue and a rich, sweet nose of blueberry,
liquorice, toffee and dark chocolate. The full bodied palate has
concentrated flavours of blackcurrant, mocha and smooth
tobacco, while the sleek, satin tannins of this brilliant 2011 vintage
provide a structure that will see this lasting the distance if cellared.
Winemaking:
After sorting, the grapes were cool-fermented with native yeasts
in stainless steel tanks for around 1 to 3 weeks; during this time,
gentle extraction was performed by delestage and remontage.
After a spontaneous malolactic fermentation in tank, 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.
Vineyard :
Ripened under the scorching sun of Castile, these Petit Verdot
grapes boast a unique terroir with a predominantly sandy soil.
Food matching:
Slow roasted beef, rich casseroled meats and chargrilled steaks.
