Characteristics of Valdelana Reserva

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

The winery Valdelana is a family run business, the fruit of a long viticulture history that dates back to the 16th century when the family acquired its first lands in El Ciego (la Rioja Alavesa).

Valdelana Reserva is produced from the varieties Tempranillo (95%) and Graciano (5%). The vineyards grow in calcareous-clay soils with high amounts of chalk, which gives rise to its low yield of grapes.

In addition, being south facing vineyards and possessing a microclimate that protects the fields from the harsh northerly winds from Sierra de Cantabria produce a concentrated grape low in water.

For production, Valdelana Reserva is aged for 24 months in French (50%) and American (50%) oak barrels. After the time spent in the barrel, Valdelana Reserva rests for a further 12 additonal months in bottle.

Tasting notes Valdelana Reserva

Valdelana Reserva 2013 is a structured and meaty red wine. A balanced vintage. On the nose, it has aromas of ripe red fruit with toasted notes and light spices. In the mouth, it is sharp, with amplitude and a long finish.
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.
Sight Cherry red, full robe. Clean and bright. Nose Enjoyable ripe red fruit aromas accompanied by fine spicy and herby notes. Taste Flavoursome and structure, mid-palate is unctuous and fleshy with fine fruity sensations. Good acidity. Long and juicy finish.
