“Cropped from an unusually cold and rainy vintage from which Único will not be bottled, the 2013 Valbuena is always released in its fifth year. It's mostly Tempranillo with 5% Merlot that was put through a three- to four-day cold soak in oak vats, where it fermented with indigenous yeasts and was pumped over. It matured in new and used 225-litre French and American oak barrels and also in 20,000-litre oak vats, where the larger vessels respect the fruit, especially in a more fragile vintage like 2013. It's a very elegant and fresh Valbuena with a developed nose, quite classical with a fine texture, elegant tannins and a supple, long finish where the oak is still quite obvious. I liked it very much and consider it a triumph over the challenges of the year.”
