Characteristics of Valdelana Crianza

Valdelana Crianza is a red wine produced by the winery Valdelana, in the D.O Rioja.

The winery is located in El Ciego (La Rioja Alavesa) which has been looking after vineyards since the 16th century, ever since the Valdelana family acquired their first lands. Their wines reflect the centuries of experience that gone in to produce this product.

Valdelana Crianza is produced from the varietal Tempranillo (95%) and Mazuelo (5%).

The grapes grow in very specific conditions, permanently exposed to the sun because of their south facing location. The vines are low yielding and the soils are rich in chalk, there is a microclimate because of the protection provided by the Sierra Cantabria against the cold winds. The result is a very concentrated grape with very little water.

For production, a fermentation process at a controlled 27-28ºC for 12 days.

After the wine making process, Valdelana Crianza is aged for 12 months in French (60%) and American (40%) oak barrels. Ultimately, the wine is left to refine in the bottle for an additional 12 months more.

Tasting notes Valdelana Crianza

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
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.
Sight Expressive ruby red and bright with purple reflections. Nose Intense fruity aromas with herbal and spicy notes. Mineral base. Taste Flavoursome and light. Mid-palate is juicy and direct, with enjoyable fruity sensations. Very good acidity. Long and somewhat spicy finish.
