Quinta Sardonia 'Sardon'

Winemaker Christian Rey describes the 2017 Sardon as containing good aromatic intensity with notes of forest fruit and a touch of spice. On the palate, the wine is fresh, fruity and voluminous with well-integrated tannins and a refreshing mineral finish. As this wine is only partially aged in oak, it is fruit-forward, pleasant and enjoyable when served by the glass or paired with any type of food. Open and honest from the first sip, this wine could be your quintessential house red. First produced in 2014, Sardón, is a unique blend of 95% Tempranillo, with a 5% mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Garnacha Tinta, Albillo, Syrah and/or Malbec in any given vintage. Carefully managed by winemaker Christian Rey, the head-pruned vines that go into making Sardón are planted in small blocks that are farmed both organically and biodynamically. Extraction is kept to a minimum and wine is fermented with wild yeast strains in order to preserve the wine’s most fruit-forward and aromatic aspects.
