Tasting Note:
The deep gravel soils here produce wines with a distinctive firm,
tannic character that balances beautifully with the layers of ripe
strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruit. The wine spends 19 months
in new French oak barrels, marrying the complex flavours of wild
red fruits, liquorice, herbs and minerals. 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 refine further over the next
few years.
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 :
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 distinctive firm tannins.
Food matching:
Match with beef casseroles, roast lamb and seared steaks.
