Spain, Somontano

I actually discovered Abadia Retuerta in 2018 during a trip to Spain from Madrid to Barcelona, ​​stopping at many areas. I could speak for hours of the beauty of the estate, of the wonderful people who received us, of the hotel in the middle of the vineyards simply named "Le Domaine", an old abbey dating from 1146 which had been abandoned and which was restored with exceptional care and attention to detail by Abadia. But it is on this last point that I will develop my explanation of this area: "care and attention to detail". In Switzerland, there is a watch brand called "Greubel & Forsey" and their slogan is “watch inventors.” For me, Abadia Retuerta are “wine inventors”. They are such enthusiasts that they have been joined by the best since in particular the facilities were designed by Pascal Delbeck, owner of the exceptional Château Ausonne. They planted, studied, created and developed methods specially adapted to their terroir to offer us wonderful wines.

The Selección Especial, entry level of the estate is nonetheless a great wine. It's like pushing open the door of an abbey and then, once inside, discovering a fresco by Michelangelo; marvel at these features mixing fruit and acid as well as intense perfumes to finally find yourself admiring next to a gentleman with a face that lets you imagine thousands of stories, smoking his cigar, too, although having an immense life experience, in awe of the detail and smooth finesse of this work...

The cave

Abadía Retuerta is a Spanish winery founded in 1996. The estate is located just outside the boundary of the Ribera del Duero region, in the province of Castilla y León, in north central Spain, near the village of Sardon del Duero. Located 32km east of the city of Valladolid, it sits in wine estates that stretch from Tudela de Duero to Peñafiel, known as the "golden mile". In particular, it is only a few kilometers from the famous producer Vega Sicilia.

The domain

The Abadía Retuerta estate extends over 710 ha, of which 210 ha are planted with vines. The altitude is 640 m near the Duero River and rises to about 780 m. The composition of the soil is heterogeneous, with sand, clay and some gravel near the river and limestone interspersed with aggregate boulders and stones on the top of the hill. The climate is extremely continental and semi-desert, with hot summers, cold winters and average annual rainfall of 300 mm to 450 mm. Being outside the DO Ribera del Duero allows them to use drip irrigation when they need it. The 54 plots extend over 206 hectares (HA) of which 146 are planted with Tempranillo, 40 with Cabernet Sauvignon, 16 with Merlot, 2 with Syrah and 2 with Petit Verdot.

The installations

The winemaking facilities were designed by consultant oenologist Pascal Delbeck, owner of Château Ausone, who still works with the estate and Angel Anocíbar. The winery is designed around a gravity flow system and has a laboratory and a 5,000 barrel capacity aging cellar carved into the side of the adjacent mountain. Wines can be aged in the 80 stainless steel vats, or in any combination of the 3,700 225-litre Bordeaux-style barrels, made from 80% French oak and 20% American oak. Some French oak comes from Limousin forests, others from Allier trees. Humidity and temperature are maintained at optimum levels for wine development.

ALLERGIES

Wines
(may contain sulphites, eggs, milk, fish)

Red and white wine usually contain sulphites, but there are sulphur-free wines available. Many wines use eggs, milk or fish at the fining stage of production. The ingredient list will not include these allergens because even though the wine has come into contact with these ingredients, they are removed from the final product.

"BUYING WINE IS A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE IN WHICH YOU MUST BE PART OF"

KYRRO is quality driven

Coming from the Icelandic “Kyrrð” which means calm, Kyrro evokes the impalpable, it is this moment of peace and silence, this moment that keeps us suspended and prevents us from breathing the eternity of a second. This same sensation felt when preparing to taste a great wine; here it comes into contact with our senses and our imagination...
