Valenciso Blanco 2018

R295.00 inc. VAT
"Delicate fruit tones which are reticent at first but which open up in a lively way bringing light dairy and spicy notes with the wood making itself delicately noticeable. Long, full-bodied and elegant. It is well-structured with excellent acidity and solid firmness, but also rich and honeyed." - Producer Note

Valenciso Rioja Reserva 2011

R350.00 inc. VAT
"I was quite pleasantly surprised by the 2011 Reserva, a wine from an extremely warm year when ripe and excessively developed wines abound. This 2011 seems to have improved with bottle age, and its elegant and balanced side definitely wins over the ripeness of the year. The oak feels very integrated and the palate terribly balanced. A great 2011." - Luis Guitérrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Valenciso Rioja Reserva 2012

R365.01 inc. VAT
“Valenciso’s all-Tempranillo Reserva is drawn from 18 parcels on clay-limestone soils, all within a ten-kilometre radius of the winery in Ollauri. Showing the freshness, balance and precision that’s a feature of the bodega’s style, this is graceful, spicy and beautifully nuanced.” - Tim Atkin, MW

Valenciso Rioja Reserva Magnum 2012

R750.00 inc. VAT
"2012 was a warm and dry year, when some vines were blocked and stopped ripening the grapes. Surprisingly enough, many wines have retained more freshness than what the natural conditions of the year anticipated. Valenciso's 2012 Reserva has more stuffing and power than the 2011 and comes from a year that was saved by some rains in September and big temperature contrasts between day and night. It's very tasty, almost salty (the words of Jean Gonon from St Joseph saying "our wines are salty, to be enjoyed with food. There is no room for sweetness in our wines," comes to my mind). It's a modern classical Rioja in the making, still young but showing some development and incipient complexity. These wines develop slowly and nicely in bottle and seem to hit the spot after some eight years after the harvest." - Luis Gutiérrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
