The wine

Pago La Garduña, Pago Negralada, Pago Valdebellón and Petit Verdot are the four single estate wines from Abadía Retuerta, with each one being an expression of their parcel of origin. A wine made from 100% Syrah grapes and with 16 months of oak ageing: an intense colour, good structure, an abundance of fruit and pleasant tannins. A fine wine which has deservedly won praise and recognition in several international competitions, such as a Gold Medal at the prestigious International Wine Challenge (IWC) 2008, organised by the UK wine magazine group William Reed, in which up until then only five Spanish wines had received acknowledgement, with Pago La Garduña being the only 100% Syrah.

Pago Garduña 2005 also received a Gold Medal at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.

Matured for 20 months in new French Allier oak barrels.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The 2018 Pago la Garduña, which has different clones of Syrah in it, shows more delicate in cooler years like this 2018, and the wine has more elegance, complexity and freshness. It's still powerful and ripe at 14.5% alcohol and has a varietal profile, with a reductive personality, notes of olives, violets and other flowers, licorice and white pepper and a mineral twist; in a word, complex. It's very intense and structured, but with silky tannins. It matured for 18 months in French barriques, 50% of them new. To me, this is one of the finest vintages of this wine. 4,708 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2020.

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...
