Selección Especial is the first wine from Abadía Retuerta in which the best wines of the vintage are selected and blended together. All of the wines come from the estate’s own vineyard, which has been separated into 54 distinct plots. This wine mostly consists of Tempranillo, which is native from the Duero Valley, and it is complemented by other varieties from the estate, chosen by tasting. The objective is to balance the quirks of each vintage while maintaining the wine’s characteristic style.

Selección Especial is a faithful reflection of the vintage, the terroir and the personality of Abadía Retuerta.

Tasting Notes

2017 and 2018 were very different years in the Duero, but at Abadía Retuerta, the killer frost from 2017 barely touched the vines. The 2017 Selección Especial is concentrated from the low yields and ripe from the warm cycle. It's a blend of 75% Tempranillo, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Syrah and 3% Merlot that matured for 12 months in barrels, one-third new. It's ripe and creamy and has an extroverted personality. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with a juicy texture and fine, chalky tannins. 443,446 bottles produced.
