85% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), 5% Merlot & Malbec.
Der Valbuena wurde vom renommierten Weinkritiker Hugh Johnson in seinem Werk "Der kleine Johnson 2011" als herausragender Wein gekürt!
End of January 2019, The Wine Advocate | 231st Jan 2019 | Luis Gutiérrez
The 2014 Valbuena, mostly Tempranillo with some 5% Merlot fermented by plot, making a selection from their 210 hectares of vineyards, and then matured in a combination of barriques and larger 20,000-liter oak vats. 2014 is a spectacular vintage of Valbuena, and it reminds me of the 2010, perhaps a tad more elegant and less powerful. It's expressive and has floral notes on the nose along with wild berries, herbs and a spicy and smoky touch that's nicely integrated. It has good complexity and nuance, and the palate is medium to full-bodied and intense, with pungent flavors and great length and persistence. Truly spectacular!
