unusually for a Rioja, all of Bodegas Valdemar’s Grapes come from the family’s own vineyards (almost 300 hectares), giving the winery unrivaled control over the quality of the fruit at every level, as as well as the possibility of selecting grapes for special bottling’s such as this wine.  And it is because of this that we can tell you that the old, low-yielding, late-ripening Graciano wines were harvested for this wine in the third week of October 2008.
Exceptionally concentrated, Aromas of Damp Earth, Sage, Lavender & Plums are Entirely Enticing.  This leads to a Racy, Elegant, Silky, Textured Wine with Superb Spice & Savoury Flavours on the palate.
