Quinta Sardonia Sardon 2020


This Tempranillo predominant blend sits at the fuller bodied, warming, fruit forward side of red wine. Without being  overbearing, it has grippy, savoury tannins that are just asking for a decent piece of protein. Spain’s reds are celebrated for being great value for money, and this wine is a serious and excellent demonstration of that.

Quinta Sardonia was founded by Peter Sisseck, maker of the iconic wine Pingus (the dude’s a bit of a big deal in the Spanish wine industry). Now a part of a group of wineries that include Terras Gauda, the estate is based in Ribera del Duero, known as the golden mile of the Duero River. Vineyards are located along the river in Castilla y Leon, and are both biodynamic and organic certificated.
