    Winemaker Notes

    With this Valdehermoso Roble wine we wanted to convey the deep-rooted connection between the wine-grower and the land. Valdehermoso is one of the terroirs belonging to the Esteban family and is situated in Roa at an altitude of 825m on sandy chalk soil.

    This wine has been aged for 6 months in French oak barrels in order to bring out the special merits of our own ‘Tinta del País’ grape variety.

    Valdehermoso is a red wine that is distinctive due to its varietal character, with intense aromas of well-ripened wild fruits, peppered with spicy aromas and subtle toasty touches that blend in well. In the mouth it is very rounded and easy-going on the nose, with a lot of body arising from the smooth tannins. It is also very fruity, with a very good integration of fruit with wood. A tasty, lingering finish that is not astringent makes you want to drink more.

    Image of winery
    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

    View all wine

    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.

    Tempranillo

    View all wine

    Notoriously food-friendly with soft tannins, modest alcohol, and bright acidity, Tempranillo is the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. It is important throughout Spain as well as in Portugal, where it is known as Tinta Roriz and is an important component of Port wines and the table wines of the Douro region that Port calls home. California, Washington, and Oregon have all had moderate success with Tempranillo, producing a riper, more fruit-forward style of wine.

    In the Glass

    Tempranillo is often aged in new oak for the integration of spicy, woodsy, and herbal flavors, often with hints of vanilla, coconut, and dill. The grape itself produces medium-weight reds with bright red and black fruit aromas and hints of spice, leather, and tobacco, with no shortage of flavor.

    Perfect Pairings

    Tempranillo’s modest, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity make it extremely food friendly, pairing with a wide variety of Spanish-inspired dishes—especially grilled lamb chops, a rich chorizo and bean stew, or paella.

    Sommelier Secret

    The Spanish take their oak aging requirements very seriously, especially in Rioja. There, a system is in place to indicate on the label how much time the wine has spent in both barrel and bottle before release, which is helpful to the consumer trying to determine the style of an unfamiliar wine. Rioja can range from Joven (fresh, fruity, and unoaked) to Gran Reserva (complex and oxidized from extended barrel aging), with Crianza and Reserva in between.
