Conde Valdemar Rioja Gran Reserva 2011

Unusually for Rioja, all the Valdemar grapes come from the family’s own vineyards (almost 300 hectares), giving unrivalled control over the quality of the fruit at every level. Grapes for the Gran Reserva are grown in Oyón (Rioja Alavesa), Logroño (Rioja Alta) and Ausejo (Rioja Baja). The wine was aged for thirty months in French oak barriques.
