The road out of Vallodid in Northern Spain is known as the Golden Mile, so named because of the stretch of exceptional wineries that enjoy its microclimate.
It’s also home to the award-winning Abadia Retuerta (World’s Best Vineyards 2021). This wine is made entirely of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. After nearly thirty years, this variety is almost perfectly adapted to the unique enclave of the Pago Valdebellón, with its chalky soil that benefits from the particular microclimate in the highest part of the estate.
The result is a wine of a dark and intense colour, exuding a fresh, delicate air of sweet spices, exotic fruits and mineral aromas. Its persistent bouquet of redcurrant and shrubs accentuates the potential of the variety. Overall, it is a complex and generous wine that has become well-known and recognised as the best Cabernet Sauvignon in Spain.
