Winemaker Notes

#26 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2018

Very dark, black currant color with rich and robust blue fruit on the nose. Full bodied with plums, vanilla and spice on the palate. Low acidity with nice balance and full ripe tannins on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator
Rich and focused, this red delivers ripe fruit flavors of currant and blackberry that mingle with espresso, mineral and licorice notes. The firm tannins are well-integrated and crisp acidity keeps this focused. Concentrated and harmonious. Drink now through 2030.
JS 94
James Suckling
Impressive aromas of dark spice and pepper with graphite and ripe dark berries. This has a very plush and succulent palate with rich dark plums, dark chocolate and berries. Fresh, concentrated and powerful Ribera. Drink or hold.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The eponymous red 2015 Valderiz has notes of flowers, berries and spices, with contained ripeness and a juicy, full mouthfeel. There are abundant tannins that might require some more time in bottle and/or powerful food.

Bodegas Valderiz Winery Video
The design of the winery seeks to achieve as natural a wine-making process as possible, so the grapes are harmed as little as possible during their transformation to wine. Their evolution is gentle with prolonged chilled maceration, without being too exacting on the grapes. Natural yeasts on the grapes create a spontaneous fermentation. Absolutely no artificial wine-making additives (acidifiers, tannins, glucose, enzymes etc) are used. Every detail is important, from the cleanliness of our equipment to frequent tests at every production stage. Commencing three weeks before harvest with analysis of the grapes and continuing until the bottle of wine is finally served to the client. Ageing is done in barrels selected from the best French coopers, using 80% French and 20% American oak. We monitor the quality of our barrels while our coopers make them, controlling the amount of firing each barrel receives. We match specific degrees of firing to the different soil types in our vineyards.

Ribera del Duero is located in northen Spain’s Castilla y León region, just a 2-hour drive from Madrid. While winemaking in this area goes back more than 2000 years, it was in the 1980s that 9 wineries applied for and were granted Denominación de Origen (D.O.) status. Today, more than 300 wineries call Ribera del Duero home, including some of Spain’s most iconic names.

Notable Facts Ribera’s main grape variety, Tempranillo, locally know as Tinto Fino, is perfectly suited to the extreme climate of the region, where it must survive scorching summers and frigid winters. Low yields resulting from conscientious tending to old vines planted in Ribera’s diverse soils types, give Ribera wines a distinctive depth and complexity not found in other Tempranillos. Rich and full-bodied, the spice, dark fruit and smoky flavors in a bold Ribera del Duero will pair well with roasted and grilled meats, Mexican food and tomato-based sauces.

Notoriously food-friendly, long-lasting and Spain’s most widely planted grape, Tempranillo is the star variety of red wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. The Rioja terms Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva indicate both barrel and bottle time before release. Traditionally blended in Rioja with Garnacha, plus a bit of Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano, the Tempranillo in Ribera del Duero typically stands alone. Somm Secret—Tempranillo claims many different names depending on location. In Penedès, it is called Ull de Llebre and in Valdepeñas, goes by Cencibel. Known as Tinta Roriz in Portugal, Tempranillo plays an important role in Port wine.
