Bodegas Valduero Valduero Una Cepa 2016

Bodegas Valduero Valduero Una Cepa can only be described as an elite wine. This is a wine with history, different, that marks the style of Valduero. Only produced in the best years. Born in 2006 when Yolanda García Viadero noticed an area of the vineyard that produced a very characteristic grape, with little production and very small bunches.

Fun Fact: It takes one vine to produce one bottle, which makes this wine oh so very precious.

Complex and extraordinarily intense aromas of cherry, strawberry, hints of pepper, dry herbs, leather, vanilla and farmyard waft from the glass. Powerful yet refined on the well-structured palate, with smooth tannins, an elegant acidity and a long finish. A wine you'll be greedy for – your palate will miss it and want another drink once it's gone.

Ageing potential: Will keep until 2035.

100% Tempranillo from an extremely low yielding vineyard in Ribera del Duero, Spain. The vineyard is over 50 years old and is cultivated without irrigation or chemical fertilisers. Balanced cultivation with strict pruning in winter and green pruning in June. The yield is three times lower than vines grown on trellises, producing grapes with a quality that is three times greater. 

Harvesting the grapes by hand. Fermentation with native yeasts for 9 days between 23–28ºC and then a 10-day maceration. The wine ages for 18 months in oak barrels from 2 different origins, then a further 12 months in bottle.
