Drink now or cellar for up to 12 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

Quinta Sardonia was founded in 1998 by the legendary Peter Sisseck who also founded the famed Dominio de Pingus in Ribera del Duero. Located just outside the Ribera del Duero wine region, Quinta Sardonia occupies a magnificent setting on a high ridge overlooking the Duero valley below. Conditions here are ideal for producing gorgeous red wines which easily rival the estate’s more famous neighbors thanks to the harsh climate and talent of their ex-Pingus winemaker, Jerome.

Quinta Sardonia has 20 hectares of vines in total which are all farmed biodynamically to protect the local ecosystem and work in harmony with the rhythms of nature. This bottling is made from Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes along with smaller proportions of Syrah, Malbec and Merlot. The estate marks the best clusters of grapes as they ripen and then co-ferments the varieties together using yeasts that are naturally found in the winery and on the grapes. The wine is then aged in oak barrels for 19 months before bottling.

This careful and attentive approach to winemaking produces a luscious red wine that exudes rose petal, dark chocolate and sweet spice aromas. The first sip reveals a full body, intense fruity flavours and firm tannins which make this fine bottling an ideal candidate for extended ageing in the cellar.
