Vega Sicilia Valbuena

Bodegas Vega Sicilia. Founded in 1864, and considered among the world’s finest producers of red wine – think the biggest names of Burgundy, but translated with a very Spanish flavour. Valbueno is technically the ‘second wine’ of Vega Sicilia (under the illustrious, and incredibly famous, Único), but to deem it inferior would be a grave misunderstanding. The difference lies in Valbueno’s comparative youth.

While its big sibling is aged a decade (or more) before release, Valbuena is allowed five years of ageing. It’s also made from younger vines, in the region of 15-years-old. The winemakers at Vega Sicilia insist that it is thus more capable of demonstrating the subtle nuances of vintage than the label’s flagship.

Valbueno is predominantly Tempranillo, with up to 6% Merlot when the occasion calls for it. Velvet textured, with great refinement and complexity, Spanish wine lovers need look no further.

Region Ribera del Duero

Ribera del Duero is renowned for producing red wines primarily Franceom Tempranillo with immense concentration and longevity. This is due to its high altitude, cool nights, wide diurnal variation and soils richly endowed with chalk and limestone. These factors combine to give the wines of Ribera del Duero deep colour, varietal purity and vibrant acidity. Ribera del Duero encompasses 20 000 ha of vines with the dominant variety being Tinta Fino (Tempranillo) with lesser plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Garnacha (Grenache). Most wines produced in the region are 100% Tempranillo and classified according to their winemaking and ageing prior to release. The youngest wines are labelled as Joven or Crianza with the oak matured styles designated Reserva or Gran Reserva.
