Valenciso – 12/06/2012

Blanco 2010 (70% viura, 30% garnacha blanca, 9 months Russian oak, 20% new)
Very delicate aromas, white peach, mandarin, some white floral aromas, slightly creamy. Wonderful structure, finesse and elegance straight down the palate, slightly closed and reductive in a very nice way, awesome purity of fruit with minerality and very delicate oak influence. Russian oak very interesting. Wonderful drinking wine with great character.

Tinto (Reserva) 2005 (100% tempranillo)
Nice bright ripe red fruits, sour cherry, some nice ripe tomato characters, a little tobacco leaf, wild raspberries, hints of floral but some good earth components. Bright tight light freshness, intense ripe fruit most definitely, but very delicate and fine, purity of fruit and terroir. Again, pretty simple when you look at it, non-interventionist winemaking but so complex, balanced and ageable.

Tinto (Reserva) 2006 (100% tempranillo)
More closed and rustic, dense impenetrable, darker fruit somehow, but not riper. Deeper earthier notes, more savoury and picking up some vegetative spice elements, tight intense, very concentrated tannins that should open up beautifully over some time. Structure and acidity locked up at the moment.
