Characteristics of Valderiz
Valderiz is a red wine produced by Bodegas y Viñedos Valderiz is a small town in Roa de Duero, protected by the D.O. Ribera del Duero.
It is a single variety wine made from Tinta del País, the variety the is the most represented in D.O. Ribera del Duero. The grapes are grown on vines that are more than 25 years old and planted in trellises, following the guidelines of organic farming. They do not use weed-killers nor pesticide nor any type of chemical fertilizer.
Valderiz is intended for expression of fruit, vineyards and nature. As for the production of the wine, there is little intervention. There are no great extractions, and they do not use any type of external yeast to help the grape itself.
Half of the fermentation is in stainless steel deposits and the other half is in the barrels. Valderiz undergoes a 20 month aging in French oak barrels (80%) and American oak barrels (20%). 60% of the barrels are new and the rest are one wine.

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.
