The warmer growing season was noticeable in the 2014 Pago Negralada, the Tempranillo from a vineyard with relatively warm soils that provides good ripeness. The grapes were picked on September 27th, quite early, and put to ferment with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, followed by malolactic fermentation in brand new French oak barrels, where it had an upbringing of 18 months before bottling after a clarification with egg whites—quite a similar process from vineyard to vineyard and from vintage to vintage. This style of vintage worked really well for Tempranillo and the wine comes through as terribly balanced, with energy, power and elegance. While I see that Syrah has worked well in 2013, the Tempranillo needs to be ripe and years like 2013 are not as complete as 2014.View more
Reviews of Abadía Retuerta Pago Negralada 2014
Cherry red colour with purple edges. Especially noticeable smoky aromas in this Abadía Retuerta. Stays a quite a few time in the mouth.
We had it while we waited for the meal, with appetizers.
It was too well-bodied for our meal.
I had it at some good friends house.
