The 2013 Quinta Sardonia was cropped from a challenging year when they learned more than in any other vintage. They had to harvest a little earlier to avoid botrytis, and they saw that it represented no problem. In fact, they kept the practice for future vintages. Since 2012 they never use new barriques for this wine, they use the new carrels with the other wines. They also started using some 1,200-liter oak foudres, except for the Cabernet that is always aged in barrique. The blend changes slightly from year to year, as they always think in terms of soils rather than varietals. This year the bottled wine has slightly lower alcohol than in previous years. The nose is serious, quite Bordeaux, with spicy aromas, more of a cool-climate character, with a minty touch and a spark that lifts it up. I clearly noticed the input from the Cabernet Sauvignon. I think this wine has changed since 2012. The tannins are very fine and with a chalky texture from the limestone soils, which are the ones selected for this wine. This is softer and more elegant than the vintages of yesteryear. Some 22,000 bottles produced.

Druerne er næsten lige dele Tinto Fino, Cabernet Sauvignon og Merlot tilsat beherskede mængder af Syrah, Malbec og Petit Verdot som efter høsten og gæringen i rustfrit stål modner 18 måneder på nye franske fade.Vingården ligger klods op ad Ribera del Duero distriktet i et område som hedder Sardon del Duero kun 400 meter fra Duero floden. Druerne vokser i op til 800 meters højde, og mikro klimaet er mindre varmt og mere tørt end vanligt på disse breddegrader.En imponerende intens og smagsrig rødvin, hvori man tydeligt fornemmer famile skabet og den danske mesters håndværk. Ikke rated endnu.....men med 91P til Q2 i 2013 ser dette meget lovende ud.
