Description

Details

Valenciso, created in 1998, is a collaboration between ex Bodegas Palacios’ Luis Valentin and Carmen Enciso. Guided by quality and integrity and a crystal clear vision, they seek to make classically structured, subtle and elegantly fine wines, 100% Tempranillo from low yielding old vines in the Rioja Alta. Winemaker Alicia Eyaralar uses exclusively French barriques, a third being new each year, to produce around 100,000 bottles each vintage. A new bodega in Ollauri was completed just in time for the 2006 vintage.

Vineyards
Grapes are sourced from 80-year-old vines on clay, stone soil in the North of the Rioja Alta area - these vineyards are of outstanding quality. Sustainable viticultural practices are followed. The grapes were harvested at the beginning of October 2010.

Vinification
Fermented in 225 litre Caucasian oak barrels for 9 months. The white Grenache gives a more textural mouthfeel, and the Caucasian oak is subtler so doesn't dominate the fruit.

Tasting Notes
Complex aromas combining floral characters with preserved lemon, truffle and smoky notes. The palate is intense and broad with nuts, stone fruit characters, candied peel, minerality and balancing citrus acidity on the finish.
