Valdaya Mirum 2016 is a concentrated red wine with powerful aromas of ripe red and black fruit, over a background of toasted and smoky notes and accompanied by subtle hints of cocoa, undergrowth and liquorice. The palate is lush, silky and fruity. A wine with a surprising freshness, fine tannins and a long, mineral finish.

Knowing when to stop is one of the keys to progress and success. Although this might seem like a sentence out of a self-help book, the truth is that this thinking has led to great successes. Valdaya is an example of this. This winery was founded in the small town of Sotillo de la Ribera, in the heart of the largest grape-producing region, the D.O. Ribera del Duero, Burgos (Castilla y León) with the aim of continuing the family’s winemaking tradition, but they ended up moving away from a being a guaranteed place for the winery’s partners to sell their grapes regardless of their quality, to introducing a new way of working based on micro fermentations from the nine best vineyard plots run by the most trusted family producers. This shift in focus from quantity to quality has earned them the recognition of great wine gurus like James Suckiling, Tim Atkin and Robert Parker.

The champions behind this project, Marta Ramas and Miguel Fisa, two young winemakers with experience in Bordeaux, Hawkes Bay, Napa Valley and El Cabo, were hired by Valdaya to convert the winery, and they came up with the idea of swapping the large stainless steel tanks for small used barrels. This meant the must could be micro-fermented from single plots. The idea was not at all far-fetched and in a short time their wines went from being simple wholesale productions to exquisite bottles. One example of this transformation is Valdaya Mirum, considered one of the best wines in Ribera del Duero, according to Decanter Magazine.

Valdaya Mirum is made with the Tinta del País variety from old, respectfully cultivated vines. When the grapes reach optimum ripeness, they are harvested and each plot is vinified separately. The grapes are destemmed and placed in open barrels where they macerate after fermentation for 2-3 days. The must then ferments spontaneously with native yeasts for 20 days and finally the wine ages in new French oak barrels for 16 months. The result is spectacular. A wine with predominant fruit, great finesse and minerality.

Ribera del Duero wine is one of the most prestigious wines in Spain. Red wines made with Tinto Fino variety grapes, with highly complex aromas, fine on the palate and with a great storage capacity. The wines of Ribera del Duero present a perfect balance between the vividness of the fruit and the refinement of the wood, which has led to them obtaining a well-deserved international acclaim.
