Review

Located in the exceptional 'golden mile' of the Ribera del Duero, the Abadía Retuerta winery stands out for its original and innovative wine-producing methods; the way they work each and every one of their 54 plots, adapting each vinification to that year's harvest, and the grape varieties they choose to work with, which aren't officially accepted by the appellation's regulatory board. The Abadía Retuerta wines offer a perfect reflection of the cultural identity of the winery and a diverse range of styles ideal for any occasion. Perfect for moments shared with friends or family, or for your most important celebrations.

Abadía Retuerta's Selección Especial has been this winery's star performer over time. It's also their most representative wine, best known and highly acclaimed, apart from being the perfect example to prove that Nature is unaware of boundaries. The Abadía Retuerta vineyards are located just outside the Ribera del Duero DO's border, but their wines exhibit a very similar structure, powerfulness and character to those that do fall within this famous denomination. Discover this by trying their Selección Especial, a robust and aromatically spicy wine, in which fruit-driven aromas mingle harmoniously with balsamic, toasty and liquorice notes, and highlighting a special characteristic: it's made with a blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) and Syrah (10%). Absolutely irresistible, really worth trying!

Wonderful

Wonderful Spanish red and really good value, this wine hits way above its price point. Has become somewhat of a staple wine in my cellar. Fullbodied and great structure.

El mejor acompañante de la carne roja

Calidad sublime, redondo, con todas las notas que un buen vino debe reunir con un buen chuleton.

ESTUPENDO

SIEMPRE ACERTADO. PARA NOSOTROS ES UN VINAZO EN RELACION CALIDAD PRECIO.

Super value

Exquisite wine. Soft, drinkable, quite mature with lots of dark fruits, and a pleasant hint of CS character. Possibly the best value for money I ever had.

Good wine but early to drink

Subtle, tanic with nice aromas and medium finish. I enjoyed it after decanting as an aperitif and with yellow cheese. However I think we drunk it too early; it needed a couple of more years to mature.

Abadía Retuerta

Abadía Retuerta

Bodega Abadía Retuerta’s name comes from two words that define and describe the land: Ribula Torta which means a “winding river bank”. The first written reference alluding to the importance of the Abadía vineyards dates back to the 17th Century, and shows that the wine sold by the monks who were living there dominated the market in Valladolid, Castile’s largest city. More recently, in the 1970s, the former owners pulled up the vines growing at that time and, after extensive...
