In 1889, Joaquin Martínez Bujanda first began to grow grapes in the La Rioja region of Spain. Nearly 100 years later, the Bujanda family expanded their vineyards and began construction of what today is known as Bodegas Valdemar. Today, with over 125 years of winemaking experience and five generations of family at the helm, Bodegas Valdemar provides the utmost quality to each of their wines.
Unusually for Rioja, all Bodegas Valdemar wines are sourced from their very own estate vineyards – located in all three sub-regions of Rioja – giving them unrivalled control over the quality of grapes at every level. The range of wines makes the most of this consistency and flexibility, from unoaked Rioja’s bursting with flavour, to dense, complex rarities.
Taste: It has a light straw yellow colour with greenish hues, clean and bright. It displays intense aromas of white flowers such as orange blossoms and stone fruit, like pears, with a delicate background of dried fruit notes, such as hazelnuts along with subtle smoky aromas provided by the oak ageing.
Complex, smooth, fresh with a tasty character typical of the limestone soil of the Alto Cantabria estate. With a vibrant and elegant aftertaste.
FOOD PAIRING: This wine goes well with fish in sauce or baked fish and white meats in general. Ideal with foie-gras, pasta and rice dishes with shellfish. Perfect match for aperitifs and Asian cuisine.
