The wine

The junior Quinta Sardonia has the ability to keep us guessing. It's like an energetic youngster, lively and spirited, showing its muscle and power, yet pure, elegant and seductive when it chooses to be. Still young and impetuous, QS2 needs time to put on that perfect show; always open the bottle well beforehand, and wait patiently for it to perform.

QS2 may be the junior at Quinta Sardonia but there's nothing inferior about it. Youthful perhaps, like the vines it comes from, but it boasts a firm foundation, excellent care and good guidance. Let's not forget that it was Peter Sisseck who designed this winery project, now incorporated into the Terras Gauda winery group, and that its head technician right from the start has been Jérôme Bougnaud, an expert vine grower and oenologist, a supporter of the French model that puts trust in soils and Nature; incidentally, Jérôme is a member of the team in charge of viticulture at Dominio de Pingus.

QS2's quality is no accident, its elegance natural, a consequence of the balance obtained between soil, climate and varieties. Quinta Sardonia's work is based upon the complexity of the terroir and understanding how to interpret the different soil types and their interaction with each individual variety. This gives rise to a wine like QS2, made from a blend of mainly Tempranillo (Tinto Fino) grapes (80%), Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Syrah.

A wine with a very rich nose, an especially juicy and powerful palate, an extremely well-balanced blend, fluid and with pleasant tannins, that seems to surpass itself with every vintage. In the glass, QS2 appears an intense Picota cherry colour, of medium-high density, and on the nose that dual aspect of virility and femininity which we noted at the start: muscular, powerful, yet elegant and profound. Its quality is obvious, with very juicy fruit and a hugely rich aromatic palette, of well-ripened fruits, sharp-tasting red and also black fruits, with floral notes, earthy touches and hints of black pepper. Luscious and silky-textured, its sweetness is apparent right through until the appearance at the finish of a slightly bitter, chocolatey, creamy undertone, denoting a most serious wine.

Quinta Sardonia

Today Quinta Sardonia belongs to the Terras Gauda winery group, but the project was initially designed and overseen by Peter Sisseck. In fact, the winery's head technician, Jérôme Bougnaud, has worked with Peter for many years and is a member of the team responsible for viticulture at Dominio de Pingus. Quinta Sardonia maintains a very close link with the Ribera del Duero DO, despite not coming under its sphere because of purely administrative and political reasons at the...
