TASTE
Old, low-yielding vines here give a wine of exceptional concentration and depth of spicy mulberry fruit. The natural acidity of the Graciano grape lends an air of elegance and freshness, giving exceptional overall balance.

PRODUCER
Bodegas Valdemar is a family company whose roots date back to 1889, and whose Riojas have long been a reference point for the DO. Despite this their approach is forward-looking; having pioneered many techniques in the region, from barrel fermentation and temperature control to saignée-method rosado, their style tends towards the modern.

VINEYARD
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, as well as the possibility of selecting grapes for special bottlings such as this one. The late-ripening Graciano here was harvested in the third week of October.

WINERY
The wine spent twenty months in new French oak barrels.

PRESS & AWARDS
“The purple-colored 2005 Inspiracion Valdemar Graciano (100%) was aged for 20 months in French oak. Aromas of damp earth, sage, lavender, and plum are enticing. This leads to a racy, elegant, silky-textured wine with superb spice and savory flavors on the palate. 90+ points” – The Wine Advocate, June 2009

“This modern red shows an inky black color and an electric mix of muscular tannins and tingling acidity on the palate, delivering tart blackberry, bitter chocolate and orange peel flavors. Exuberant and distinctive. 90 points” – Wine Spectator, June 2009
