Winemaker Notes

Dark ruby in color, this wine displays aromas of red and black fruits and toasty oak. On the palate it reveals rich and round ripe fruit that is beautifully balanced and delineated with big chewy tannins on the finish.

The 80 yr old vineyard that belonged to the father of Tomás Esteban, is where this wine came from and it now produces only 1,500 kg per hectare.Biodynamic agriculture is used in this vineyard.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
After they skipped the 2013 vintage, the top of the range comes back with an impressive 2014 Valderiz Tomas Esteban, an homage to the winery's founder. It's produced with the grapes from an old family vineyard planted with Tempranillo and some 5% white Albillo. This has power, energy and finesse along with abundant, chalky and fine-grained tannins and all the ingredients and balance for a positive development in bottle.

James Suckling
A fragrant nose of blackberries, blackcurrants, toast, roasted walnuts and baking spices. Full-bodied with firm, chalky tannins. Structured and layered with a rich, chewy finish. Drink or hold.

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, Spanish wine region, 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.
