2016 Abadia Retuerta Le Domaine Blanco De Guarda

Share on Facebook

Our first white is a “terroir” wine perfect for laying down, and is the result of 20 years of research. Made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes planted 20 years ago, it is enriched with a hint of Verdejo and other white wine varieties. Despite the area being traditionally devoted to reds, these varieties have adapted wonderfully to our climate and “terroir” and have soaked up the ancestral spirit of the land. The sun drenched, sandy and pebbly plot it hails from, ensures the almost perfect ripening of each crop, resulting in an original and surprising wine, bright and straw-coloured with golden hues. Its’ nose is complex, intense and fruity; reminiscent of other grape varieties, with hints of pineapple and grapefruit, toast, butter and bakery. After 5 to 6 months of ageing in French Oak barrels, a fresh, citric, smoky, and slightly spiced flavour is achieved. It is a wine with body, just the right notes of wood, unctuous, with a long, fresh and delicate finish. It is a faithful reflection of our personality and has huge potential for laying down.
