Characteristics of Conde de Valdemar Crianza

Conde de Valdemar Crianza is a red wine made by Valdemar with the Tempranillo and Graciano varieties, all grown in the winery’s own vineyards spread across the different areas of the D.O.Ca. Rioja.

In 1889 the first generation of Conde de Valdemar were already cultivating their own vineyards in Oyón (Rioja Alta), where the family is from. Then in the 80s, Jesús Martínez Bujanda, 4th generation, decided to set up Bodegas Valdemar to produce unique wines with a classic style like the first barrel-fermented white and the first single-variety Maturana and Tempranillo Blanco wines. Now, the 5th generation have set up shop in the US, becoming the first non-US winery established in Wall Walla (Washington).

Faithful to the philosophy of producing wines exclusively with their own vineyards, Conde de Valdemar Crianza comes from vineyards spread across the three sub-zones of the Denominación de Origen Rioja. Specifically, from the vineyards planted in Oyón, Logroño and Ausejo. They use traditional agriculture and the harvest is carried out at the optimum point of ripeness.

Once in the winery, the Conde de Valdemar Crianza grapes are carefully vinified. For this, the bunches ferment in stainless steel tanks, at a controlled temperature. This red wine is then allowed to rest in the storage area for 15 months in American oak barrels.

Conde de Valdemar Crianza is a 100% Rioja red wine with a balanced combination of the grape’s fruit notes and the flavours it picks up from the barrel. A classic wine with a modern touch.

Tasting notes Conde de Valdemar Crianza

Conde de Valdemar Crianza 2016 is a concentrated red wine with a nose of black fruit, smoky touches and spiced notes of vanilla and coconut. On the palate it has a good structure and is elegant and flavoursome. It has a long and pleasant aftertaste.
Conde de Valdemar Crianza 2015 is a concentrated red wine with delicate aromas of ripe fruit with spicy cocoa notes and balsamic touches. On the palate it is rounded, expressive and very balanced. The finish reveals a long and lingering aftertaste.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.

Nose

Powerful aromas of ripe fruit which stand out on a background of toasty notes and subtle hints of spice.

Taste It is fleshy in the palate and has a soft mid palate and fine tannins. Good acidity and aftertaste characterised by its aromatic complexity (fruit and spices). Easy to drink.
Sight Dark red cherry colour with violet-purple tones. Clear and bright. Nose Intense and profound. Reminders of ripe fruit well integrated with the oak, which give some attractive spicy nuances. Taste Fleshy and full of flavour, with an excellent balance of the tannins and a long finish.
