Abando Tinto Vendimia Seleccionada Red Selected Harvest 2008
95% Tempranillo, 5% Viura. Estate bottled by Bodegas Santalba. Abando is the result of the work carried out by the family wineery all through its production process, not only in the vineyard but also in their winery, with the aim of achieving the maximum quality of this wine. Dark black-cherry red with a slight tawny rim. An intense nose with touches of candied orange peel, aromatic herbs, black fruits and medicinal hints. Full bodied in the mouth with some richness of texture, good acidity, warming, and intense. Medicinal aftertaste. A wine with great balance and presence. Recommended with roast or grilled meat, duck in orange sauce, casseroles, ham and charcuterie (cold cuts), pork fillet in mustard sauce, mature and semi-mature cheese, venison in red wine, grilled wild mushrooms, and so on.
