Characteristics of Valderiz Juegabolos

Valderiz Juegabolos is a single-varietal wine made from Tinta Fina, native grapes from the D.O. Ribera del Duero. The grapes come from an estate called Juegabolos, a vineyard planted by Tomás Esteban in 1988.
Finca Juegabolos is located on very special terroir. The first stratum is formed by gravel which, as well as draining the scarce rainfall, forces the vines to put down roots in deeper stratums, which provides the wine with mineral touches and plenty of structure.
During the wine's production, no microorganisms are inoculated, allowing the native yeasts from the environment to prompt fermentation. This red wine goes through the malolactic fermentation in barrels. Subsequently, it is aged for 36 months in French oak barrels.
Serve at 17ºC

Tasting notes Valderiz Juegabolos

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.
The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time. The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
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.
After a predictable winter, the weather changed in spring. Temperatures were higher than normal, which caused an early start of the grapes’ ripening cycle. The normal course of the climate at the end of spring and at the beginning of the summer, allowed the vines to recover their usual pace, and the veraison took place on the expected dates. The beginning of the harvest was slightly early due to the strong heat the grapes suffered during their ripening. However, the nice weather throughout the harvest, without rain or frost, provided grapes with an impeccable health. Wines from the 2011 vintage have a slightly higher alcohol strength than usual, with a perfect balance thanks to their natural acidity, concentration of colour and phenolic richness. For all these reasons, this vintage has been classified as excellent, offering high-quality young wines, and wines with the ideal features for their ageing.
Sight Ruby red colour with slightly bluish reflections. This wine shows an intense robe. Nose The primary aromas stand out at first: forest fruits, jammy fruits, floral notes and violets, showing the perfect ripening of the grapes on the vines. Once opened out, aromas from its fermentation and ageing emerge: balsamic notes, spices, tobacco and cocoa. Taste This wine has a mineral character, in which its warmth predominates over its acidity. It is very well structured,  with velvety tannins and a long, lactic and tasty finish.
