Characteristics of Valdehermoso Crianza

 

Valdehermoso Crianza is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero region. It is produced by the Valderiz Winery and it made by using only Tinta del País grapes.

The grapes used to make this wine come from several vineyards located near the town of Roa.

These vineyards cover over 70 hectares, divided into 35 plots, all covering different soil types.

The winery follows ecological methods when winemaking, with no herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers being used. The local climate is mediterranean, with little rainfall and hot, dry summers.

After they have been harvested, the grapes are quickly taken to the winery in order to preserve the quality. Fermentation, both alcoholic and malolactic, take place in stainless steel tanks that have a capacity of 20,000 kilos. Before the final bottling, Valdehermoso Crianza is aged in French (80%) and American (20%) oak barrels for 14 months. 30% of the barrel is new, while the other 70% has been used before.

Valderiz Winery is a project by Tomás Esteban, who from a family with a large heritiage in viticulture. The owner of the winery, among many ventures, collaborated with Telmo Rodríguez in the development of several wines

Tasting notes Valdehermoso Crianza

After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
Valdehermoso Crianza 2015 is a mature, complex and elegant wine. This vintage has a good aromatic intensity, ripe red fruit and spicy notes, with a good balance in the mouth.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
Regarding climate, the 2012 vintage started with the sprouting of the vines in the beginning of spring with the cooler temperatures. In May, generous rainfall and high temperatures gave way to a generalised drought throughout the summer. Luckily, the rains started at the onset of the ripening. The precipitations at the beginning of October, and the nice temperatures during the harvest, resulted in the a uniform phenolic ripening. The wines from this vintage have a good alcoholic strength, balanced by moderate levels of acidity, with a good colour and phenolic intensity, and a suitable level of tannins, all important features for a perfect ageing.

It is a family-run winery that choses simplicity in the process by using organic and biodynamic practices, which leave the Tinta Fina grape variety to speak of its intrinsic virtues in the wines. The great harmony there is in the family, which remain completely united, results in a range of high-quality wines that are the reflection of the Esteban family and their vineyards.
