Characteristics Abadía Retuerta Petit Verdot
Abadía Retuerta Petit Verdot is a red wine made by the winery Abadía Retuerta in Sardón de Duero (Valladolid), V.T. Castilla y León.
Abadía Retuerta begins its journey in 1996, with vineyards planted a few years before, in 1991 and 1994. This year, they started to classify the soils according to their composition and altitude, and they started treating them individually with the subsequent vinification in mind.
The vineyards of Abadía Retuerta are planted between 700 and 850 metres of altitude. The climate in this area is mostly continental, winters are usually cold and summers are hot, the perfect weather for the suitable ripening of the grape and the balance of the vines.
These conditions, together with the best technology from one of the most advanced wineries in Europe, result in excellent wines, with all the character of the terroir and the potential of each variety.
Abadía Retuerta Petit Verdot is a red wine made with Petit Verdot, from a vineyard planted in 1991. It is located at 840 metres of altitude, planted on a very unique terroir with sandy soils.
After the harvest, the grapes are selected on a selection table. Must fermentation is carried out in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature. The maceration lasts 10 days. The malolactic fermentation takes place in new French oak barrels. The wine is aged for 17 months in French and American oak barrels.
